See an octopus garden

February 26th, 2005 · No Comments


While the girls and I were sick earlier this month, we made two dioramas. For one we placed a plastic octopus in the center, with hanging fishes, coral and sea stars. Abigail’s idea to use sandpaper for the sea floor resulted in greater light reflection.

Appropriate Audio Accompaniment for this post:
Seb Paquet in his Webjay demo for the Lightning Tools panel happened to play the song Im Garten eines Kraken, a German version of the Muppet version of the Beatles song Octopus’s Garden.

If you’d like come along see an octopus’s garden, and you live on Bainbridge Island, simply stop by the Paper Products store window on Winslow Way where the dioramas are displayed.


Here’s the one I made, but I’m not as fond of it as I am of the octopus…
