How to Make Scissor Skills Jellyfish Craft
What you need:
- our printable template
- white construction paper and coloring supplies or paper in different colors
Step by Step Tutorial
Print out the template. We printed the heads on white paper and the tentacles on colored paper. You can either print them all on color paper or print both on white paper and color them. For the head part we recommend printing on construction paper / cardstock while tentacles work best with regular paper.
Color in the jellyfish head. There are so many colors you can pick for this part. We are making a pinky lady jellyfish.
Cut out the tentacles.
Cut along the dashed lines between each tentacle.
Apply glue on the rectangle with the word glue in it.
Stick the jellyfish head on top of the tentacles.
Start rolling the tentacles – you can use a pencil or a marker to make it ever easier.
Start from the bottom part and roll towards the top, stopping at different lengths.
Our jellyfish is coming along nicely.
All done and ready to be used as a decoration.
Now make as many as you like.
