The upper primary class made these colorful jellyfish last week. They started with a cardboard shape for the head which I cut out for them, and traced it onto a piece of colorful collage paper, which they cut out. They chose strips of fabric for tentacles, which they stapled onto the cardboard shape.
They glued their collage paper head onto the cardboard head, hiding the staples, and decorated it, in some cases, with more collage papers. After one child drew a Japanese anime-inspired face on his jellyfish, most of the children added a face.
Then it was time for thick lines and dots of glow-in-the dark-paint on the heads.
I wish we had better light in our art room. The lights are very feeble and as Autumn goes on it is going to get darker and darker in there!
Glow-in-the-dark paint needs to dry overnight, so we had to put the jellyfish up high to dry until this week.
I know some children who are very excited to hang their creations in their bedrooms!
