Paper bag jellyfish

  We finally went to the aquarium at the Mall of America today. The jellyfish exhibit was pretty great and I decided on the way home I needed to figure out a way to make one. Here's what I came up with:
Brown paper grocery bag
Crepe paper
Googly eyes
Glue or tape
1. Cut a large circle from paper bag
2. Cut a slit to about the middle of the circle

3. Paint the circle (we also used circle brush for dots)
4. Once dry, overlap the slits to make a dome and glue or tape shut
5. Glue or tape eyes and draw a mouth
6. Turn upsidedown in a bowl (this keeps it from sliding around)
7. Glue or tape streamers to underside of bag.

8. Hang and enjoy!
