Ask children what animal you have. Introduce some of the facts in the lyrics, then sing song. Be playful with puppet swimming and waving arms, etc.Lyrics:
Hello Mr. Octopus, swimming in the sea
Thanks for coming to play with me!
Don’t get scared and squirt your ink
Or change your color to hide from me!
You have so many arms to swim and play
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
You have three hearts, and blue blood too!
Mr. Octopus it’s fun to play with you
