Wibbly Wobbly Jellyfish

Wibbly Wobbly Jellyfish

What you need:
A paper plate
Paint
Scrap materials – fabric/ribbon/string
Googly Eyes
Knitting needle or Hole punch

Upon spotting a pile of paper plates, Olivia requested to paint one (right before dinner of course).

The following day, Olivia picked the plate up singing “wibble wobble, wibble wobble Jelly on a plate”…

And so, a Wibbly Wobbly Jellyfish is born.

Start by folding the paper plate in half, inserting a single hole in the middle of the plate along the crease of the fold. Insert further holes along the bottom of the curved area (on both sides of the plate).Craft Ideas for Kids

Thread a piece of thick fabric/string, knotting the end, through the single centre hole. Thread further fabric through the lower holes, pulling the plate to a close and secure with a knot.Craft Ideas for Kids

Attach further pieces of string to the fabric to add body, colour and texture. Continue this process until the all the holes are filled. Once complete, add your googly eyes and smiley face to the plate.Craft Ideas for Kids

This is a great activity for little fingers to practice basic knots and to get to grips with threading. For younger crafty kids, it offers a stimulating sensory experience. As you can see, Eden loved the Wibbly Wobbly Jellyfish.Craft Ideas for Kids
