We made dragonflies for a craft.
I saw this idea over at Sun Hats & Wellie Boots.
The children loved it and the parents appreciated that their child could do it on their own.
All you need are pipecleaners, pony beads and wings cut from a clear material.
I used overhead transparencies.
This is what we did.
Fold a pipe cleaner in half and thread a bead to almost the end.
Slide the wings between the pipe cleaner.
Thread another bead onto both sides of the pipe cleaner
to hold the wings snug.
Add as many beads to the body as you wish.
Then finish it off by decorating the wings with permanent markers.
Then make your dragonfly fly.
