Clean Up the Beach & Have Fun Doing It with the Bottle-Legged Octopus

One of the ideas behind creating meaningful, impactful educational experiences is, "You gotta make it fun." Here's a brilliant concept designed to do just that when it comes to learning to clean up the beach. This cute little octopus (although, technically, it's just got six legs, so...sextopus?) is missing his legs; collecting discarded plastic bottles will both restore its limbs and make it buoyant enough to float. Trash = toy, just like that. It might be so much fun that us big kids would help collect new legs, too. Hit the jump to see what happens when the little guy has all six legs. via ::Yanko Design
