An octopus is a very interesting animal that is found in the ocean and you can also make one as a tasty treat. Take a large marshmallow and several sticks of licorice. Cut the licorice so that you have eight pieces that are all the same size and length. These will be inserted into the marshmallow to act as legs or tentacles. The licorice should be stiff enough to be able to push it into the mallow or you will need to poke holes in advance so they have a spot to go. Another candy that could be used for the tentacles are gummy worms. All of these snacks can be tasty and a great way to learn about the ocean and the animals that live there.
