The summer months just scream “beaches & oceans” to us. Not only do we love taking beach trips, but pool time tends to involve a lot of ocean animals as well. So crafts & activities centered around beach themes and ocean animals are especially popular around here during the summer. In keeping with that theme, how about making a fun & easy jellyfish craft?!
This is such a great project to do with the kids because it’s inexpensive and you only need a few supplies. Here’s what you’ll need:
- coffee filters
- spray bottle with water
- paper towel
- crepe paper or ribbon
- glue or tape
- fishing line (optional)

Just give the kids a coffee filter and let them color it however they’d like. Once they’re done, fold it in half, place it on a paper towel, and let them spray it with water. The colors bleed giving it a fun watercolor-like effect.
Once dry, cut along the fold and glue in crepe paper or ribbons (for the tentacles). If you’d like to hang it, add a piece of fishing line. So fun & something the kids will love making. I think they’d look really fun with a whole bunch hanging from the ceiling for an “under the sea” party or something.
