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.
Supplies (may include affiliate links):
Paint both sides of the plate purple.
Let the paint dry completely.
Use a hole punch to add holes around the edge of the plate.
Stick a fuzzy stick through each hole in the paper plate.
Tie knots in the fuzzy sticks on one end to secure them. These knots should be on the top of the plate.
Punch a hole in the top of the plate with a pencil.
Fold a fuzzy stick in half and thread it through the center hole. The folded portion should be sticking through the top with the loose ends on the bottom.
Knot the fuzzy stick on the underside of the plate.
Looking to pair this craft with a book? Try the (affiliate link) I Can Read! Sea Creatures – Made By God book. It’s a level 2 I Can Read Book!. It also covers sea turtles, sea horses, and whales. Make several as decorations for a water themed party.
