My son has long been interested in sea creatures. He loves reading books about sea animals, watching educational videos, and visiting aquariums. His reading skills far exceed my crafting skills, so I love finding easy arts and craft projects that go along with his interests, but do not exceed my abilities. This paper bag jellyfish craft is a quick and easy project that allows him to be creative without taxing my crafting skills.
Paper Bag Jellyfish Craft

1. Paint the front of your bag with a mix of colors and let dry.
