I found this idea to paint jellyfish here at Deep Space Sparkle; Art Lessons for Kids. We really liked this project. We used liquid watercolors. We had splatters all over the place. Even Sammy had some blue and yellow splots on him. What's art without getting messy.

Victoria has been learning about the ocean and became very focused on Jellyfish. She had a really hard time understanding that jellyfish don't have brains, eyes, or a nervous system but can sting and eat. She and Kaleb constructed these little jellyfish from pudding cups to hang in the entry way to the kitchen. They really wanted to hang them completely across the opening but I didn't want to have to walk through streamers every single time I entered the kitchen. So they had to leave an opening.
