Paper Plate Jellyfish Craft

Paper plates make an awesome medium for preschool crafts. During our homeschool lesson on the letter J, my daughter and I made an easy but fun paper plate jellyfish craft.

Materials

  • Paper plate
  • Markers or paint
  • Glue
  • Yarn
  • Scissors
  • Google eyes

Directions

  1. Decorate the bottom of the paper plate with markers or paint.
  2. Cut the decorated plate in half.
  3. Cut the yarn into 12-inch pieces.
  4. Glue the two halves of the plate together with the yarn sandwiched between.
  5. Glue two google eyes on one side of the paper plate jelly fish.
