Cute paper plate jellyfish craft for kids

If you’ve followed the blog at all you will know that my son is mad about all things under the sea. He loves learning about the ocean environment and its inhabitants though his books and we read some of national geographic kids ultimate oceanpedia almost every single day. He loves watching documentaries together too and more often than not hes the one teaching me something new! It was actually him who gave me the idea for this cute paper plate jellyfish when he said how he thought the bubble wrap from our parcel looked like a jellyfish. I’d already planned to get some paints out for him and his sister so we merged the two ideas and came up with these little cuties!

Here’s what we used

  • A good sized paper plate
  • Coloured paints
  • Paintbrush or sponges
  • Bubble wrap
  • Paper (we used pink, black and white)
  • Scissors
  • Glue

How to make a cute paper plate jellyfish.

First take your paper plate and cut a wavy line down through the centre. You can make two jellyfish from one paper plate.

Take one half of your paper plate and use your sponges and paint to decorate it. When you have finished, pop your paper plate to one side to dry.

Whilst your paper plate is drying, cut out some strips of bubble wrap and lightly paint the bubble side. Put these aside to dry with your plate.

Once your jellyfish head is dry you can give your jellyfish a face. To make our eyes we used a large white circle for the outer eye, a slightly smaller black circle for the pupil and a small white circle for the light spot. For the mouth we just cut out a small semi-circle piece of pink card.

Finish off your jellyfish by gluing your dried bubble wrap strips centrally on the back of your paper plate.
