Day One: We start by wetting the backside of a paper bowl with water.. then use liquid watercolors to "tye-dye" the surface (wet-on-wet technique).
Next each student colors (or "scribble-scrabbles) a coffee filter with washable markers (I only gave them primary colors). Once finished I came around with a spray bottle of water and sprayed their filters (this causes the ink from the markers to spread and mix). These were moved onto a plastic lid and then placed on the drying rack.

We then used white paper to make eyes for their jellyfish and these are taped on as well.
Lastly, I came around and punctured two holes into the top of each bowl (with a sgraffito tool) and a piece of fishing line is strung through and tied (so the jellyfish can be hung up).
