Fun Octopus Facts and Games for Kids
» They have eight arms and are boneless so their bodies are flexible, allowing them to swim through very small spaces.
» They live in hidden spaces; in holes or crevices of rocks.
» They can swim backwards.
» They vary in size with the largest growing as much as 23 feet.
» Their favorite things to eat are crabs and crayfish. 
Name your Octopus, count his arms and name places in the ocean he can squeeze through.
