ABC Book: Letter O

If you haven't noticed with the last few ABC Book posts, Blonde Warrior has been working his way through the vowels, but not necessarily in order...remember, there is method to my madness.  

Take a look at Letter "O".  I let Blonde Warrior choose a tissue paper color and then I helped hold the blue that he had chosen so that he could cut eight long strips of it.  He, then, glued those strips on the bottom of the "O"

He used some markers to color the letter and add a face in the middle.  Can you guess what he made?

O is for Octopus
