Paper Plate Jellyfish Craft

If it seems like I am a little obsessed with paper plate crafts, then it’s probably because I am! I’ve discovered how inexpensive, yet versatile, that they are. They span across a range of age groups. Older kids can add more details to their paper plate crafts, and small kids can participate by keeping it simple. Today, I’m sharing a craft that I think got buried in another post that I did earlier this year. My daughter and I read a Sea Creatures book last night, and it brought this Paper Plate Jellyfish Craft to mind.
