There will be hands-on activities for kids, octopus feedings, divers swimming with an octopus and talks happening each day.

To mark this momentous occasion, I thought it would be perfectly fitting to share some fun party ideas if you have a budding teuthologist.

Handmade invites like these from Nest Full Of Eggs set the tone perfectly.

Need to keep them busy? How about making a yarn octopus  from FamilyFun after a rousing game of Octopus Tag?

Octodogs are so easy to make, I’ve made them so many times.  Just cut slits for legs in an uncooked wiener and drop into boiling water, the legs will curl right before your eyes!

Of course you must make these Tentacle Pot Pies from l0cal gal Not Martha featured on Babble.

Make them yourself or kill two birds with one stone.  Keep them busy by setting out all the goodies and have guests make these cupcakes from  Disney’s Family.com.

Wash it all down with this octopus punch from Better Homes & Garden.
