- Egg carton (6 cup side)
- White card stock paper
- Tissue paper
- Pipe cleaner
Start by cutting up an egg carton so you have 6 cups connected (this is the dragonfly's body). Have the kids paint it whatever colors they want. We used a light blue, darker blue, and purple.
Cut out some dragonfly wings with white card stock paper (I drew mine copying this template since it was too small to print). Cut up squares out of tissue paper and have them glue them all over the wings. Poke a knife or pen into the front and add small pipe cleaner antennas. Once the paint is all dry, glue the wings on top of the second "cup" of the egg carton. Note that the wings might curl up during drying so you might want to put some heavy objects on it.
