Each week I'll give you 2 to 3 (sometimes more!) activities, books, crafts, or songs that you can do with each letter!
This week is the letter J!
Items that could go in a J Mystery box!
Jellyfish in a Jar
Small clear plastic bag
Blue food coloring
Hot glue gun
Cut the plastic bag into a square
Create a little pouch in the middle of the square and tie it with the string like a balloon to make a "head"
Cut the remaining plastic around the tied string into strips to make tentacles
Fill the bottle with water and add some food coloring
Pour a little bit of water in the "head" and push the jellyfish into the bottle
Secure the cap with hot glue
Allow the children to explore the jellyfish
