These 3-D paper fireflies sparkle in the dark!
Fireflies are fascinating insects that use a glowing part of their abdomen to signal to each other. Some scientists think this flashing body section might be used to attract mates, and others think it might be used to warn off predators. Before you create your own firefly, look at pictures or catch a firefly to study and release. There are many different species.
Cut a strip of black paper with Crayola® Scissors to create the firefly's body. Use Crayola Gel Markers to color a glowing band on the bottom edge of the paper. This band should cover about a quarter of the paper's total height and be as wide as the whole strip.
Roll the paper into a cylinder with the band at the bottom edge. Use Crayola School Glue to glue the cylinder together. Dry.
Cut two pieces of black construction paper into curved firefly wings. Outline each wing with Crayola Gel Markers.
Line up the wings with the bottom of the firefly's glowing abdomen. Glue the top edge of the wings to the cylinder.
Use Crayola Gel Markers to decorate the firefly's head.
Insects have six legs, so cut six thin strips of black paper. Glue legs to the underside of the firefly's body. Add two tiny black antennae for a finishing touch.
For extra fun, make a mobile with several Fascinating Fireflies. Hang it in your bedroom window.
