Recycled Jelly Fish
Using recycled materials for art is something I try to encourage my children to do on a daily basis. When I handed over some out-dated shoulder pads to my daughter she began to create a very cool sea creature. I love her excitement to reuse something old.
How We Did It
You can easily find old shoulder pads in a thrift shop. They were a lot of fun for my kids to create with so I will be hunting for a few more.
Emma used tacky glue to attach various ribbons to the back of the shoulder pad.
Next she added a silly jelly fish face using googly eyes and markers.
She ended up using the other shoulder pad to make an adorable butterfly with pipe cleaner and sequins. I love seeing little imaginations at work.
