Jellyfish are things of unique and great beauty, though best viewed from afar. Using recycled materials and Crayola® Slick Stixs™, construct one of these unusual and dramatic creatures of the sea.
Study photographs of jellyfish. Marvel at the variety of shapes and colors. Identify where they are primarily found in the ocean. Learn the body parts of jellyfish. How do they move? Eat? Reproduce?
Choose a clear, plastic container (clamshell) for your jellyfish’s body. Clean and dry the container. Turning it over, decorate the underside of the container using Slick Stixs™. Slick Stix contain pigments that may stain clothing, fabrics and other household surfaces. Wear a smock to protect clothing and cover your work surface with newspaper. For extra luminescence, apply Crayola® Glitter Glue.
Gather together different yarns, strings, and ribbons in a shank for the jellyfish’s tentacles (the tentacles sting when brushed against). Various pieces of collage materials may be added to the tentacles like raffia or plastic netting. Cut a length of string long enough to bind the tentacles together as well as hang up the sculpture. Tulle material may be stuffed inside the container for an additional colorful dimension.
Ask an adult to cut an “X” in the center of the container’s top. Feed only the string of the shank through the opening and loop the end to form a hanger. Display these sculptures like works of art.
