Making : Balloon Jellyfish

22 April 20095 Comments

The kids made this the other day.

Jellyfish friends!

A really simple and quick activity for little kids!

Here’s how your family can make some too :

What we used :

- Balloons (We used tiny balloons, usually available in supermarkets too)

- Double-sided tape

- Crepe paper

- Marker (to draw the eyes and mouth)



What we did :

- Inflate the balloons, tie the ends and stick double-sided tape around it

- Cut out strips of different coloured crepe paper

- Let the kids place crepe paper onto the sticky tape around the balloons

- Draw eyes and mouths on the balloons

And that’s it!!

And the kids went all silly with them!
