Using the white crayon, draw an outline of some coral and water ripples on the paper plate. You won’t be able to see it until you start painting (water colours are best for this). You can talk about how it is a magic drawing/painting. Set aside to dry.
Take the A6 piece of card, it can be any colour. Draw an outline of a jellyfish shape with lead pencil. Paint it and cut it out. Put this aside to dry as well.
Once the paper plate is dry, using a lead pencil draw a curved line from one side of the flat part of the plate to the other side. We are going to cut along this line. Use the pencil to make a hole at each end so I was able to get the scissors through to start cutting.
Now to make the jellyfish. Make 5 holes along the wiggly edge of the cut out using a hole punch. If you don’t have one you can use glue for the next step. Decorate the Jellyfish with crayons and draw a smiley face.
Cut short lengths of wool (measure it up against the plate), they can be any colour. Fold the wool in half so there is a loop at one end. Thread the loop end through one hole. Once through, thread the other end through the loop and pull. Keep doing this on all 5 holes, these are the jellyfish tentacles. You can at this stage unravel the wool to make it look like the jellyfish has more tentacles. If you don’t have the holes glue the wool lengths to the back of the jellyfish.
Turn the jellyfish over and tape the paddle pop stick down, this is the holder so you are able to move the jellyfish back and forth once you poke it through the slit you made in the paper plate.
Now you can take your Jellyfish for a swim! Enjoy.
