Jellyfish tentacles counting

 

This activity was so much fun! 

 

My littlest enjoyed learning about counting with this jellyfish craft. 

 

Here are the steps I took to put this simple craft together: 

 

Note: Get your littles involved in the coloring of the jellyfish. It will make it that much more fun for them (learning through play.)

 

  • Cut however many paper plates you will use in half. (These will be the jellyfish.)

  • Then, draw eyes to each of the jellyfish half paper plates. 

  • Align them on the poster board to see how you will glue them on. 

  • Then, draw different colored lines to them if you’d like to learn about colors. 

  • Draw regular lines if you just want to learn about counting. Get creative with it. 

  • Use elmers glue to secure the jellyfish onto the poster board. 

  • Write numbers on top of the jellyfish that equal to the amount of tentacles of the jellyfish. 

  • Voila! You’ve a simple dot sticker activity. 🙂

Counting with jellyfish

 

Each jellyfish had a different amount of tentacles. 

 

For instance, the 1 had 1 tentacle, the 2 had 2 tentacles and so on and so forth. 

 

My LO filled dot stickers onto the tentacle of the jellyfish with one tentacle. 

 

Then, on the jellyfish with 2 tentacles she added dot stickers to the two tentacles on the poster board. 

 

I incorporated a bit of color matching but you can just add one dot sticker to the one and then two dot stickers to the two to make it a bit of a less advanced approach. 

 

The paper plate jellyfish were really cool because they gave off this 3D effect of them popping out which was neat! 

 

And, like I said you can always have your LO decorate them before adding them onto the poster board with glue. 

 

This will allow for them to be more engaged and learning with a piece of something they made.
