    If you prefer, make a dragonfly pattern first (step 2). Or you can make your own freehand drawing with the Crayola Color Explosion™ color-reveal marker on Color Explosion Paper(then skip to step 3).

    To make a pattern. Fold white paper in half. Use Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils to sketch half of a dragonfly along the folded edge. Here’s how: Begin near the top of the page at the fold. Draw half of a long, tapered oval. You can easily erase this basic shape to create a head. Draw two overlapping wings on the dragonfly body. Cut out your folded dragonfly with Crayola Scissors. Open the pattern and place it on a piece of Color Explosion Paper. Trace the shape with the color-reveal marker.

    Decorate your insect however you like. Real dragonflies have lines inside their wings, kind of like leaf veins. You can use lines, dots, or whatever designs you want!
