    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.


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


    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.
