Check out our easy Paperplate Jellyfish craft for the perfect way to pass the time with your kids inside.
Are you and your kiddos ready for a fun craft that’s easy to do indoors? I don’t know about you, but this cold is brutal and it’s even worse with no snow to play with! Follow along for our easy Paperplate Jellyfish Craft. It’s super easy to make (I bet you already have everything at your house) and super cute to display!
Whenever I make crafts with my kids, I like to add some interesting facts for their learning. Did you know Jellyfish are older than the dinosaurs? They have been around 600 million years! Jellyfish are made up of 98% water and have no brain. Some jellyfish can even glow in the dark and they are found all over the world!
Paperplate Jellyfish Craft
- Paper plate (1 makes 2 jellyfish)
- Fuzzy Sticks ( 4 or 5 per jellyfish)
- Googly Eyes
- Hole punch
Directions to Create Paperplate Jellyfish Craft
Step one: To make these super cute jellyfish, start by cutting out the middle of the paper plate. This is the nice flat piece. Set aside the scraps. I always save them for other crafts!
Step Two: Cut the paper plate circles in half. You now have two jellyfish “heads”!
Step Three: To make the jellyfish tentacles, bend the fuzzy sticks back and forth until they are scrunched up. Gently pull them back apart, it will stretch them out to length leaving a cute zig zag pattern in them.
Step Four: Punch a hole at the very bottom middle of the half circle (jellyfish head). Put the end of one fuzzy stick through the bottom hole. Twist it around itself to hold in place.
Step Five: Wrap each fuzzy stick around the first one, twisting tightly to keep them attached. You now have tentacles hanging from your jellyfish head!
Step Six: Glue the googly eyes in place and punch a hole above them in the middle. Thread yarn through for hanging.
Step Seven: Decorate the jellyfish heads as desired!
