One of our favorite parts of summer is running around outside at dusk chasing after fireflies. To capture this we decided to do a firefly craft that really glows in the dark, just like the real thing! This bug craft is simple one, with only a few pieces, but it is very big on imagination. While we did it we talked about how we were using some glitter to make the wings sparkle just like a real lightning bug and about how fireflies blink in order to talk. Our preschool aged daughter loved this firefly craft and asked to do it again and again. The funniest part is that this is the only craft that we hang up in our closet!
