CD and Ribbon Jellyfish Craft
This easy craft is the perfect summer boredom buster. Kids love crafting with old CDs, and the layered effect of the tissue paper is beautiful.
To Make This Jellyfish Craft You Will Need

Directions for Tissue Paper Jellyfish Craft
1. Spread glue over the back of the CD with a brush.
2. Press tissue paper squares over the glue, wrapping the tissue paper over the sides. Allow the glue to dry.
3. Glue 2 medium-sized wiggly eyes to the CD. Invite kids to draw a smile on the jellyfish with the black permanent marker.
