Moon Jellies - a fun craft

We had some fun with school today. On the FIAR boards, under the decluttering thread, it was suggested to have a "messy" school day. Seems like a good day to make our own moon jellies. Here's how we made ours:

3" styrofoam balls
thumb tacks
cutting board
serrated knife
glow bracelets
wax paper (or something else to go under painting)

With knife, cut balls in half (or close to half)

Spread out wax paper. Decide on color for moonjellies. Originally we were going to paint them white, but some were orangeish yellow, some pink, some white.

While the paint is still wet, sprinkle on the glitter. I also dunked the thumb
tack in paint and glitter.

After the paint is dry, the thumb tack can be put in the top with string attached so the moon jellies can be hung. Also, just before bed, we'll break the glow bracelets and put them on the flat surface underneath.

More pictures to come later today.
