Simple STEAM Octopus

An animated Octopus to download and make.  A fun STEAM activity for all ages!

Check out the video on my Instagram feed and on the website. Members can download and make this project for free, thanks for your support!

The Octopus works as a standalone project but to bring it to life you will need the 644 Twister seen below.

644 Twister!

The 644 Twister is named for the 6″ x 4″ x 4″ box on which it is based.

Turn the handle on the twister mechanism and the vertical shaft twists back and forth and up and down! Add your own character and make it dance! I’ll be posting how-to instructions for the bird and octopus characters shortly as well as a sketch sheet of other ideas for you to try at home whilst self-isolating!

Members can download the fully illustrated instructions for construction from the website for free, thanks for signing up!
