Clothespin dragonflies are such a fun summer craft. They are simple to make and look cute once they are finished.
- Blue Paint
- Beads for the eyes
- Glitter and glue (or glitter glue)
- A small piece of white tissue paper
Have children paint the clothespins blue. Once the paint is dry, paint one side of each clothespin with glue and sprinkle glitter over it. If you prefer, just apply glitter glue using the paintbrush.
Put a dot of glue on each side of the top of each clothespin and press the beads in the glue to represent eyes. Once the glue is dry, fold or crinkle the tissue paper to create dragonfly wings. Open the clothespins and insert the wings.
