I’m getting ahead of Finding Dory, a movie that I think is going to be one of the  biggest hits of all time! Hank is one of the new characters. He’s played by Ed O’Neill from Modern Family. Hank looks hilarious! I was thinking that I would take an octopus craft that I had in mind, make it orange, and turn it into Hank! Come on in and I’ll show you this craft that I think you’re gonna want to make for Finding Dory Parties!

You’ll Need:

  • Orange Gloves – I found mine at a hardware store. They are PVC gloves, but garden gloves might do the trick
  • 1 in. wide wiggle eyes (2)
  • Orange foam sheet
  • Blue foam sheet (optional)
  • Scissors
  • Warm glue gun and sticks, or my favorite alternative that doesn’t get hot is Fabri-tac!

Now:

  • *If you’re doing this with kids, you might want to do this step for them and have the eyes ready.  
  •  If you want blue eyes, then flip the eyes over and cut the backs open 
  • Cut out blue foam circles that are bigger than the pupil, but small enough to show the white of the eye
  • Insert the blue foam, close the white slits back up and flip them over. You have blue eyes for Hank! Well…almost
