Jelly Fish - a fun craft for kids.

We just spent a vacation at the beach and when we returned, the boys were still enamored with everything ocean.  So I decided to take advantage of their enthusiasm and make this fun Jelly Fish craft.

Supplies Needed:
  • Paper plates - one per jelly fish
  • Paint and Paint Brushes
  • Scissors
  • Stapler
  • Tissue Paper
  • Glue
  • Yarn
  • Googly Eyes

Step 1:  Cut the paper plate in half.  Paint the bottom of both halves of the paper plate.  Let paint dry.

Step 2:  Cut tissue paper in strips (approx. 1"x10").

Step 3:  Glue 3-5 strips of tissue paper near the straight edge to the non-painted side of each paper plate half. 

Step 4:  Staple paper plate halves together along the curved edge of the plate.  On the top part of the curve, staple in a piece of yarn (to hang jelly fish).

Step 5:  Glue on googly eyes and yard mouth.

Step 6:  After glue drys, hang and enjoy the fun jelly fish.
