Toddler Letters - "J" is for "Jellyfish"


Toddler/Preshooler letter of the week craft J is for Jellyfish with related craft, tracing sheets and fruits/vegetables.

Supplies Needed:

  • Colored Craft Paper
  • Letter "J" Cutout
  • Elmer's Glue
  • Scissors 
  • Googly Eyes
  • Ribbon
  • Markers


Set Up:

I cut out our "J" ahead of time, then we sat down at the craft table and I let my son cut little strips off of a whole bunch of random ribbons and colored strings I had.  Once we had a good pile of strings I showed him how to put glue on the "J" (I have a glue stick pictured above, but we ended up using Elmer's glue) then we glued the strings to our "J".  Finally when we had enough strings we added some goggly eyes and let our J with its strings dry.  Once our "J" was dry we glued our jellyfish to a sheet of craft paper.

We finished by talking about different kinds of things that live in the water; fish, starfish, jellyfish, crabs, sharks, dolphins etc.
