Jellyfish Craft

  1. Cut lowercase letter j from a piece of pink foam sheet. To make the letters go along with the uppercase letters we’ve done in the past, this letter was cut from a piece of foam that was about 4” x 5”.
  2. Cut plastic sheet protector into the shape of a jellyfish body with tentacles.
  3. Use a Q-tip or paintbrush to spread a thin layer of glue over the entire jellyfish.
  4. Generously sprinkle glitter over the wet glue and shake off excess glitter.
  5. Let dry then glue the lower case j onto the jellyfish.
