Supplies for Paper Plate Jellyfish


  1. First, use any color to paint your paper plate. I suggest using bright colors. Your child can add glitter or sequins to the paper plate. Set it aside to dry.
  2. Next, use a pencil to draw a wavy design on the painted paper plate then cut.
  3. Cut 6 strips of yarn or ribbon and ric rac trim. Tape them to the back of the paper plate to create your jellyfish.
  4. Finally, use glue to attach the googly eyes to the jellyfish. If you don’t have googly eyes, use black and white paper to make the eyes.
