Kids Club #3 - Jellyfish in the glass

At the 3rd part of the Urban Art Kids Club – the club against boredom at home we design medusen together from recycled material. Have fun!

What kind of material you need:

  • A thin plastic bag
  • Sewing thread
  • Scissors
  • Felt pens (Optional)
  • Empty mason jar
  • Food colour or blue ink
  • Water


  • Cut out a square from the plastic bag, about 20 x 20 cm
  • As in the picture, hold the plastic bag between the fingers and fill it with water until a round shape (head of the jellyfish) emerges.
  • Rotate the round shape so that it closes and knot staphes it with thread.
  • Cut the rest of the plastic into fine strips (tentacles).
  • Fill the glass with water, but not to the very top.
  • Put a few droplets of food color in.
  • Close the glass and shake vigorously.
  • Clean the jellyfish, add water (completely) and close the glass.
  • Turn the glass over and watch your jellyfish while swimming. In the dark it is especially nice to illuminate the glass with a lamp!
