Ever since he was little, Charlie has been quite the creative soul. He’s taken a liking to the blog and even stood on a chair this past Easter to get just the right photograph of his Easter eggs. A cross between Martha Stewart and Bill Gates (thank you, Sarah Cupcakes), Charlie is the newest addition to the blog with a weekly feature all his own, “Charlie’s Creative Corner.” From crafts to things he builds, Charlie will be creating a special space for your kids here and we can’t wait to share his flair for all things glitter, engineering, and creativity. The writing will be dictated by Charlie to me (his mom) and I will assist with pictures and editing.
Hi, this is me, Charlie. And I’m building a Jellyfish because I like the movie, Finding Nemo. And this is my first craft of making this blog.
Next, I’ll show you how to make the jellyfish.
You will have to use these things…
White construction paper
Cheetah-printed purple construction paper (He was very specific – any fun patterned print will do. I think.)
Two dog stickers
Two cat stickers
Scissors (Parent note: Please always assist and/or watch your child around scissors)
Step 1. Cut a half circle for the head.
Step 2. Make seven rectangles for the legs.
Step 3. Glue the legs onto the head.
Step 4. Put the cat stickers on leg four and leg six.
Step 5. Put the dog stickers on leg five and leg seven.
Step 6. Glue the black glitter into a stripe across the head.
Step 7. Put the yellow glitter straight down in a stripe.
Step 8. Put the gold glitter and make it into a stripe diagonally to the left.
Step 9. Put the blue glitter diagonally to the right.
Step 10. Make triangles out of white paper and make it look like it’s stinging something. Glue the triangles to the legs.
I’m finished. See my next craft on Sunday. Hint: It’s going to be about Thanksgiving.
