Reuse plastic bags and a paper plate to make a jelly fish recycle craft with the kids!
This month we are joining in Project: Recycle & Create and the material we have to use is bags, plastic or brown bags. We chose plastic bags(since we have so many and need to recycle them) and made a jelly fish! We also have this Jelly Fish from recycling t-shirts.
We are having the theme ‘Ocean’ at school next week and will be decorating the school accordingly. We will be making more of these in class to hang all over the school.
Here is how we made it:
We took a paper plate and cut it in half. Plastic grocery bags were cut into strips.
The piece of bubble wrap went around the paper plate. We simply stuck it on with sticky tape.
Then the strips of plastic were also stuck on with the sticky tape.
And that’s it! Such an easy jelly fish recycle craft idea!
*UPDATE* My class’ jelly fish!
I am planning on cutting up more green and blue plastic bags to use as seaweed when we decorate the school.
They’ll really get a lot of great fine motor practice out if this . I’d love to see what the whole room looks like with these everywhere!

The plastic bags are perfect for jelly fish – good thinking!

Wow, this is really beautiful idea. I’ll do it with my little boy, so he can understand how to recycle. Thanks so much.

I took the recyclables idea and made a octopus using the materials .
