This morning we made flying dragonflies!!
We used sparkly craft pom poms, popsicle/craft sticks, glue, feathers, googly eyes, and string. We also made some snowflake ornaments using glue, popscicle/craft sticks, and beads. Read the captions under each photo to find out how to make them!!
|Start by gluing craft sticks in a formation like this.|
|then add some glue on the top of ethe long straight stick and add pom poms|
|We used hot glue but you can use regular Elmer's school glue if you want|
|I wanted to use this as good practice with using the hot glue gun. (under my supervision of course)|
|on the shorter criss crossed side sticks, add glue and then one feather for each stick|
|then grab some string or twice, do a few criss-crosses(jump jump) and then secure them. I ended up adding a foam craft sticker over the bottom where you see that exposed string. It keeps it from tangling later.|
We made snowflakes with craft sticks too! Basically the same as the dragonflies but shape the sticks in a snowflake formation, add glue and any beads you want. Then you can add string to hang on your Christmas tree!
