How To Make A Paper Plate Jellyfish

     

    This Paper Plate Jellyfish makes a cute addition to an underwater artwork display. Or why not decorate both sides and suspend it from the ceiling as a hanging decoration? Either way, have a go at creating your own with your kids.

    You will need:
    Paper plate
    Wiggle eyes
    Ribbon
    Foil, crepe paper or tissue paper (to cover the body of your jellyfish)

    Instructions:

    1. Cut your paper plate in half and cover with foil paper or crepe paper
    2. Now glue on two wiggle eyes and draw a mouth with a black felt pen
    3. Cut four lengths of ribbon (approx. 30cm in length)
    4. Glue each ribbon length to the back of the plate and allow to dry – these will be the tentacles
    5. Once the ribbons have dried, carefully curl each length of ribbon against the blade of a pair of scissors to create wavy tentacles for your jellyfish
