I remember the day I visited an aquarium for the very first time. I was amazed by the colors and textures of the marine animals—especially the jellyfish. These guys are some of the coolest creatures of the sea world! They have mesmerizing tentacles and the most beautiful iridescent colors.
When my baby turned 5 months old, he started paying attention to colors and anything moving around him. I decided it was time to take him on his first trip to our local aquarium. I can't wait to show him these amazing creatures; I'm sure he will be delighted to see them swimming gracefully behind the glass.
But looking at them through the glass just doesn't seem like enough. So, of course, I made two fun floating jellyfish out of paper lanterns and ribbon to hang in his nursery. The second he saw them he was mesmerized and wanted to touch them. They were most definitely a success. And when he starts talking, we can practice the different names for jellyfish in Spanish!
These floating jellyfish are a great to decorate a kid's room with an ocean theme, or even a playroom or birthday party! A couple of these hanging from a tree would lend a truly amazing, detailed touch to your decorations.
Note: If you do use these as a nursery decoration, you should hang them in an area away from the crib where a child can't reach and pull them down.
