July 4th is right around the corner and we’ve decided to join our towns Children’s parade. We plan to put some decorations on our stroller and make a shaker for fun. I wanted to share our fun crafts so you can make them with your child/children.
I’m a stickler for paper plate crafts. We always have them and there’s so many things you can do with a paper plate. I saw this craft on Facebook and knew it would be a fun activity to do with Liam while Bennett took his morning nap.
small piece of cardboard (I used an old teddy graham box. I often recycle my snack boxes, they are a great substitute for cardboard)
blue paint/blue marker
pink paint (or color you’d like to paint your jellyfish)
colorful yarn (we only had navy blue, but you can use a rainbow of colors)
googly eyes or google eye stickers
jumbo craft stick (large popcycle stick)
scissors (I used adult and child size, I had Liam help cut the yarn)
I like to let my son make it his own, perfection is not in the product. Of course this does drive me nuts seeing as I’m a perfectionist. He gets so excited knowing it’s unique and he did everything by himself.
