Snack Cup Jellyfish
Activity DesignerJulie Kirkwood
Upcycled plastic snack cups, some tissue paper, and silly googly eyes are all the materials you need to make these jellyfish. To make them look like they are gracefully swimming, hang them over an air vent or near an open window. The breeze will make their light tissue paper tentacles move and sway.
What You'll Need
How We Did It
We started by painting a layer of glue onto the outside of the snack cup, then put on a layer of tissue paper, followed by another layer of glue. We repeated this process until the snack cup was covered and you could no longer see through the tissue paper (about two to three layers).
I used a small, sharp scissor to poke a hole in the center of the cups so we could later attach a string to hang up our jellyfish.
Once everything was dry, we put a piece of craft string through the top and knotted it inside the craft cup.
