Ella the Octopus

Friday's visit to the Mattapoisett Public Library was a delight! After my presentation to the kids I did some drawing with them. First I drew some of the characters from What Can You Do with an Old Red Shoe?, then I had them help to brainstorm a new character. This is what they came up with: an overall wearing octopus about to attack a diver with popcorn. Once we were finished the kids put on the finishing touches by coloring it in. Good fun!
