Welcome to our exciting drawing tutorial! 🎨 Today, we'll be learning how to draw a Cute Jellyfish, perfect for kids and beginners. Whether you're here to watch a quick video or follow along with our detailed step-by-step guide, we've got you covered.

Jellyfish aren’t fish at all. They are mysterious creatures that are actually gelatinous, they have no spine and they are like jelly! There are fossils of jellyfish that are from over 500 million years ago, which makes them hundreds of million years older than dinosaurs! Jellyfish have bell-shaped bodies, arms that bring food to their mouth and up to 15 tentacles. A jellyfish's tentacles can have millions of very small stinging cells. These stinging cells release toxins into a prey, so when a human brushes a jellyfish, it stings because these toxins are going into our skin! Finally a jellyfish has no brain, heart or lungs!
