I always find jellyfish beautiful to look at. But don't make their colorful appearance fool you, jellyfish can accidentally sting you when you accidentally touch them. This sting can be very painful and dangerous. Jellyfish are found in basically every ocean worldwide.
There are so much jellyfish themed crafts out there for children. The most simple one I have every made is from a white plastic bag and crepe paper. But you can alternate the plastic bag with construction paper or a paper/plastic bowl which is safer for children.
Start off with a white garbage bag. Crumple up a second garbage bag and stuff it to the bottom of the first bag. This will be the head. So wrap tape around the bag for a neck...it should now look like the first picture above. Next, cut the bottom of the bag into strips. Then either cut out paper eyes (cutting white and black ovals and gluing thing together) or paste large googly eyes to the jellyfish's face. Next, take a piece of string and loop it thru the tape neck...this will be for hanging the windsock. Next you can add glitter, sequins, and other colorful items to the jellyfish. Hang it and watch it blow in the wind.
You start making this jellyfish craft with a paper or plastic bowl. Design the bowl with paint or Sharpie markers and then let dry. With parental supervision, poke a hole in the top of the bowl. Thread a string thru the hole and then tie a knot. Pull the string through and tie a loop for hanging. Then cut strips of colorful tissue paper. Then glue the strips to the center of the inside of the bowl. Also glue googly eyes on the outside of the bowl for its face.
