This is a fun craft project that combines different art techniques. It is messy and playful, and makes a wonderful summer craft activity.
What You’ll Need:
- Paper Mache Paste (flour, craft glue and water)
- White Tissue Paper
- Spray Bottle
- Acrylic or Watercolour Paint
- Ribbons or Old Clothes
- Thread & Needle
Step 1 - Make the paper mache paste by mixing ¼ flour, ½ water and plenty of craft glue.
Step 2 - Inflate the balloon and cover it with strips of white tissue paper using the paper mache paste. Let it dry overnight.
Step 3 - Once dry, cut the balloon in half and peel off the balloon. We will use the upper half as the jellyfish’s head.
Step 4 - Fill the spray bottle with a small amount of paint and water. Let the child have fun spraying the jellyfish’s head. It is a good idea to place the head inside a big carton box to avoid spraying the wall, floor and furniture!
Step 5 - Bundle some ribbons and other long strips of fabric. Tie the fabric together using a needle and thread. Thread the thread through the centre of the jellyfish’s head. Pull the thread through, tie it off and hang your jellyfish. It makes a perfect hanging decoration!
