How to Make

  1. Using the template draw and cut out the jellyfish from pink card or paper. Cut out or hole punch 3 circles from purple paper.
  2. Stick the jelly fish outline to the top of the white card using a jumbo glue stick.
  3. Then stick two wiggle eyes, draw a mouth, and stick the 3 purple circles to the jellyfish.
  4. Then, mix your watercolours so that they are watery. Alternatively, you can mix one-part of acrylic paint with two-parts water to make a watery paint.
  5. Dip your paintbrush in the watercolour paint and place the paint at the bottom of the jelly fish.
  6. Lastly, take your straw and blow the paint away from the jelly fish to create the tentacles.
