Sea/Ocean themed crafts – Contact paper Jellyfish craft

contact paper jellyfish craft

Still on our Ocean theme, we made this contact paper jellyfish craft which even tots can make.

Contact paper is such a hit with children and it is suitable even for little ones. Art and craft need not always have a beautiful outcome – it’s the process that matters and that’s what we did for our contact paper process art last year, back when my boy was 13 months old.

For this jellyfish craft, here’s what I prepared:

coloured tissue paper cut into small squares, contact paper, glitter, a cut-out of a ‘D’ to outline the jellyfish shape using an old painting, gold metallic paper fine cut shreds recycled from one of the parcels

To start, tear off the plasticky part of the contact paper and stick on the ‘D’ shape paper cut-out (to make things easier for this stage, trace the shape of the jellyfish on an old painting then work to cut out a ‘D’ shape from the painting so that the paper will fit nicely on the contact paper):

Can’t wait to start but mummy wants to take a pic!

And the sticking begins! My boy at 21 months truly enjoyed himself!


And obviously my 5 year old enjoyed the process too!:



Can’t wait to play with the gold metallic shreds!

I helped my boy with the tentacles and the sprinkling of the glitter and he was so proud of his completed work!:


I’m sure you can tell that my kids had a blast! It’s such a simple craft to prepare – inexpensive too! Have fun!

  1. What a fab idea – these look so pretty. We’ve just got a big new roll of contact paper so must put it to good use.

    I would love for you to link this up at the Empty Your Archive party – we’re focused on sticking crafts this week but you can also share your great old posts on over 100 different topics in the Mommy Archive, which is a fab resource bank for moms, Alice xx

  2. My nieces will visit me tomorrow. Now I have an idea for a fun activity. Thanks for sharing these photos. Look like your kids enjoyed making the jellyfish craft a lot.
