STEP 2: Prepare the jellyfish tentacles

To begin, have your toddler or preschooler choose their desired cupcake liners for their jellyfish puppet and fold two of them in half; set aside.

Then, have them choose their desired streamers in several different colours. Cut them to your desired length and cut them in half lengthwise.

Glue the streamers inside the cupcake liner, alternating between colours. Continue to add additional layers of streamers until you're happy with the result.

Once you've done that, fold the cupcake liner over the top of the streamers and glue to secure in place. Add an additional liner on top to prevent colour bleeding from the streamers.

STEP 3: Finalise the jellyfish craft

To finish up your jellyfish puppets, glue a pair of googly eyes to one of the sides of the folded cupcake liner.
