Make a Hanging Jellyfish
As those long, hot days of summer approach, lots of families start thinking about trips to the beach. Even if you're staying home though, you can bring some of the surf to your kindergartener's life with this artistic craft project. The results are colorful and the process is fun, but this activity is also educationally beneficial. The next time you find yourself with a few hours to fill, try making these “Paper Plate Jellyfish.” Your child will get to use her creativity, as well as practice her fine motor skills by painting, taping, and stapling. On top of all that, she'll learn about the creatures of the sea. This is a great way to spend an afternoon, and makes for some great decorations, too!
