Umbrella remake

Umbrella remake

We all have a broken umbrella lazily lying around just waiting to become purposeful again. 

Waiting for its time to shine in a different way than it did before. 

Well, in our opinion, there is no better way to use a broken umbrella than to make a jellyfish out of it. It's the perfect shape and embodies the role of the jellyfish superbly! It is also the perfect prop to compliment our "Ocean" theme curriculum. We used simple tools to make this and it required very little time on the crafting table. 


Take a look!

So if you would like to see how we made our jellyfish umbrella, then feel free to watch our video. We are confident this magnificent prop can add that sprinkle of magic to your classes that you've been looking for!

Wow Them,

Tiva & Randa
