You only need a few supplies to make this easy jellyfish craft. If you don’t have colored cardstock, you can paint handprints and make painted handprints too. Then draw the tentacles on with a silver marker.
If you don’t have googly eyes you can cut out white paper and then use a marker for a dot in the center. You can also have kids draw or color on the pink cheeks if you would rather not use paint.
Supplies Needed To Make a Jellyfish Handprint
- Colored Cardstock
- 12×12 Black Cardstock
- Bubble Wrap
- Googly Eyes
- Pink Paint
- Black Marker
- Glue – We like to use this glue for gluing on googly eyes which tend to be a little harder to glue. You can also use hot glue (with adult supervision or help) or regular white glue (just allow enough time for it to dry).
How to Make a Handprint Jellyfish
1. Cut out 3 handprints.
You can also turn these into a handprint card by folding over a piece of cardstock and tracing with the thumb along the folded part.
2. Cut 4 small strips of bubble wrap.
3. Tape the bubble wrap to the back of the handprint.
Tape in between each finger.
4. Glue or Tape the Handprints to Black Cardstock.
5. Glue 2 Googly Eyes On.
6. Draw on a Smiley Face.
7. Make the Pink Cheeks.
Dip the back of a pencil or paint brush into pink paint and dab onto the sides of the jellyfish face.
This is the cutest craft to make for summer or any other occasion!
