I’ve been getting lots of requests for another set of printable puppets, so I asked my kids what I should make and after a lot of crazy suggestions (does anyone know a Yoda song?) we finally settled on jellyfish, three of them!
Here are our Three Jelly Fish Printable Puppets!
Do you know the Three Jelly Fish song? It’s one of our favourite counting songs with great actions and it’s lots of fun to sing and act out.
We set up our jelly fish with some rocks and shells on a piece of blue foam for the water. We had lots of fun making the jelly fish do crazy things and make crazy sounds as they fell into the water and then climbed back up on their rock.
If you don’t know the Three Jellyfish song, Morgan and I made a quick video for you.
It involves a fair bit of toddler induced camera shake, as well as my less than perfect singing, but Morgan is rather impressed with our efforts and so am I. And I am, standing behind my belief that little kids don’t care if you can sing or not, they just care that you DO sing. So if I can share my singing voice with the whole internet, you can definitely share yours with your kids!

This is an A4 sized pdf document – if you are printing on US letter sized paper make sure you select ‘fit’ or ‘shrink to fit’ from your printer options.
Simply download the pdf, print it and cut around the outline of each jellyfish. Then cut between each tentacle and roll the tentacles around a pencil to give them some curl. Attach them to a suitable stick, we used bamboo skewers but you could use chop sticks or even sticks from the garden.
We covered our jellyfish in contact paper on one side before cutting them out so they are a bit more robust for toddler hands, but covering both sides means the tentacles don’t curl as well, so best stick to one.
