Toddler Craft Activities Jelly Fish craft

This month we are focusing on an 'Under Water' or 'Ocean' theme for our toddler activities. We started the month by reading some of our favorite Under Water books and for our craft activity today we made jellyfish using paper plates and crepe paper. We are going to use them as decorations for my daughters Octonauts themed birthday party at the end of the month, but they look great stuck on a wall or hanging up in a bedroom. If you work in a day care or early childhood setting,  they look really good hanging from some netting on the ceiling.

What do you need?

  • Paper Plates
  • Crepe Paper (we used blues and oranges but you can use whatever colors you have)
  • Oil Pastels or Crayons
  • water color paints (or use a paint wash - 2 parts water to 1 part poster paint)
  • Glue
  • Scissors

What to do

1.Cut a paper plate in half

2.Let your toddler draw and decorate the plate with crayons or pastels (pastels work best)
