How To Create This Jellyfish ArtProject
Download and print out the Jellyfish craft template.
Cut out and set aside. Glue the pieces of the jellyfish template together using a glue stick or white school glue.
Cut small bits of white paper and add to the edges of the jellyfish legs create “shine” and give it more life.
Your jellyfish craft is done unless you would like to create the watercolor background.
You could also glue this fish to construction paper or print of white paper and color it in and repeat the steps above.
These would make wonderful bulletin board crafts. You could also print more than one jellyfish in various colors for a really fun look!
