It’s time for The Kids Craft Stars monthly craft challenge! Every month we have a challenge between a few blogger friends and I, to in-cooperate a different craft medium or technique into a simple kid craft. This month’s challenge was to come up with an ocean themed craft. So this week we made these easy and colorful jellyfish suncatchers!
Easy and Colorful Jellyfish Suncatcher Kids Craft

First take your tissue paper and cut it into squares. Then using the black construction paper draw the shape of your jellyfish and then cut out the middle sot hat you then have a black jellyfish frame like the image below. If your child’s older they can do this step but because my son is still learning to use scissors I went ahead and set this step up for him.
Cut a piece of contact paper that is larger than your jellyfish, remove the protective sheet and tape the contact paper on top of a table with the sticky side facing up. Place the black jellyfish outline down on the sticky side of the contact paper and then you can start placing the tissue paper squares. Don’t worry about the paper going over the black lines, you’ll be cutting around that when you’re done.
Take another sheet of contact paper and place it down on top of your jellyfish to seal it, then trim around it. I left about an inch around the edges to make sure that it would stay sealed. Finally cut some decorative ribbon and tape it to the back of your jellyfish.
