Are you ready for summer yet? This cute coffee filter jellyfish craft is the perfect thing to do with your kids as the weather warms up.
My daughter loves when we sit down and do projects together. I don’t often have time to pull out all the craft supplies and then deal with the mess afterwards so I love when I find quick and easy crafts that she can really get into.
If you haven’t used coffee filters to craft with before, you have to try it.
There are so many things you can do with them (check out our coffee filter suns for another project idea) and they are super cheap so if you have a child who likes to go through stacks of things like my 3 year old does you don’t have to worry about it.
- Coffee filters
- Googly eyes
Fold one coffee filter in half. This will be the body of your jellyfish.
Cut the streamers into strips and glue them to the inside of the coffee filter. You don’t need much glue so go easy on it or the glue will leak through the coffee filter.
Add as many streamer pieces as you want and let it dry for a few minutes.
Stick some googly eyes on the front and draw on a smile.
That’s all there is to it. This is a super quick and easy craft (with minimal cleanup — bonus) so there’s no excuse to saying no to a few minutes of quality crafting time with your kids.

Don’t have time to plan summer projects?
I totally get it. We have those moments around here more often than I’d like to admit. One of my favorite summer boredom busters is Kiwi Crate (and their partner crates for different age groups). They come with everything you need to have some fun with your kids and the projects are always amazing!
