We (mostly I) made fun glow in the dark fireflies to go with Eric Carle's The Very Lonely Firefly about a lonely firefly looking for other firefly friends. At first mistaking lanterns, headlights, the eyes of animals, and even fireworks for other fireflies, the lonely firefly eventually finds his friends.
The only materials we used were black paper, glow stick bracelets, and tape. I taped down two bracelets to form the head and body.
And then added two sets of wings.
I know the tape looks terrible but it doesn't show in the dark.
You could make a simple homemade neon sign by using the glow sticks to spell something out. Or how about some fireworks for Memorial Day?
What have you been up to this week? I'd love for you to share whatever kid-friendly projects you have and I'll pin some to the Kid's Co-op pinterest board!
