Cute handprint jellyfish craft for kids

I absolutely love this cute handprint jellyfish craft. We made these to go on my sons door, which with all of the fun ocean crafts that we have been making latetly is turning into something of an ocean display board. These little jellyfish look so cute and the best part is they’re super simple and easy so they’re perfect for preschool aged children to make aswell as older kids.

Here’s what we used.

  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Marker pens
  • Sticker eyes

How to make our cute handprint jellyfish craft.

First we start off with the fun part! Take your paints and paint little ones hands in your chosen colours. Print the hand prints down with fingers spread apart and then put aside to dry.

Once dry, take your markers and draw several squigly lines down from between the four fingers to make the jellyfish tentacles. If your marker is thin you may need to go over the tentacles to thicken them up.

Optionally finish off by giving your jellyfish some eyes. We used eye stickers but if you dont have these you could simply cut some out of paper and use your markers to draw on the details. Aren’t they just the cutest?!
