Crafty Monday: Jellyfish & a Handprint Crab

Hello friends 🙂 I hope you’re having a lovely day. Today I’ve got just a couple of crafts to share. I am feeling much better today. I am on antibiotics again but for something else this time.  Well, enjoy the pics and check out the links if you can.

Paper plate jellyfish

I didn’t feel like getting carried away with this one so we just used one paper plate. I taped and stapled the tissue paper underneath. Michael painted the top. This was super simple. We decided not to add eyes since technically Jellyfish don’t have eyes. We read books about these critters while on vacation.

We picked up a few fiddler crabs at the beach. We accidentally brought home a hermit crab and a sea slug. In the end they all died unfortunately. But I did get a funny picture of the last two fiddler crabs facing off in a staring contest.

Lastly, Michael made a crab out of his hand print. Then we glued on eyes. Oops I just realized we forgot the mouth…

Anywho, since I’ve felt bad we just kept things simple. We read several ocean books from the library. One of my favorites is “Rainbowfish”. Also, we watched the Blue Planet and some other sea documentary on Netflix.  Another good resource is “Draw Write Now”. We have all the books in the series and Michael used the ocean book to draw an octopus and a starfish.

This week we are learning about Seahorses. I plan on making some ocean cookies too. Well, God bless & remember The High King Lives!~Amber Dover
