Rainbow Jellyfish

Supplies Needed:

  • Styrofoam balls
  • Paint
  • Paint brush
  • Googly eyes
  • Ruler
  • Colorful pipe cleaners
  • Glue


  1. Paint the Styrofoam balls with any color you want.
  2. Using your ruler, cut the Styrofoam balls in half.
  3. Wrap different colors of pipe cleaners around the end of your paint brush.
  4. Slide the pipe cleaner coils off the paintbrush and stretch out the coil to your desired length.
  5. Turn ball upside down and insert five coiled pipe cleaners into the flat, unpainted side.
  6. Glue on the googly eyes.

OPTIONAL: Use a toothpick to poke a small hole in the center of the top of the ball. Fill that hole with glue and push string in the hole. Your jellyfish can now hang!
