Hanging Jellyfish from Education.com

We're 5 activities in on Education.com's Summer Activity Challenge. We still have 5 more to do in the next 27 days in order to complete the challenge.

Yesterday I decided to do the Hanging Jellyfish craft with the kids and while we were making it we were also watching Finding Nemo (perfect, no?). The kids really love coloring on paper plates, I don't know why they are better than just a pad of paper, but it works.

We did this craft a little different than how it says to do it online. We used crayons instead of paint, skipped the glitter (wonder why) and since I didn't have streamers we used tissue paper. The kids hated adding the streamers. Here's what it looked like:

For us pairing it with Finding Nemo worked out nicely because I could show them an animated version of the jellyfish.

For more info on the craft and on the Education.com Summer Activities Challenge check out their website.
