Mix a blend of different colors of paint on the paper plate. This will have an abstract effect on your jellyfish.
Cut two curves from the paper plate to make the eyes. Then shade it using a marker.
Using the construction papers, cut strips of curvy lines to make the jellyfish’s tentacles. You can make them as long or short as you want.
Use double-sided tape to attach the tentacles to the underside of the paper plate. Spread them out evenly around the jellyfish’s body.
