Our Dragonfly printables are part of a collective notebooking/lapbooking resources called Alphabugs. This is a great way to work your way through the ABC’s while learning all about amazing creepy crawlies along the way. Our Alphabugs lapbooks are similar in content with some variations, but most contain the following resources: Anatomy, Life Cycle, Habitat, Family, Communication, Bible Verse, Copywork, Crafts, Activity suggestions and more. Additionally, we’ve included a Quilt Square for each insect so you can create a classroom quilt along the way. The quilt squares are a great way to include your younger children as they include a coloring page, handwriting practice, and scissor skills. See how to make a classroom quilt here.
This is an adorable craft that doesn’t take a lot of materials.One Pipe Cleaner,Seven Beads, (one large if you have it), Two googly eyes.
Fold the pipe cleaner in half. String on one bead on one side of the pipecleaner, thread down to the fold. (This will be the knot) String on four beads through both ends of th pipecleaner. Make wings on both sides (Mom may need to help a bit) Thread a larger bead (if you have it) and then a regular sized bead. Curl the ends of the pipecleaner. Glue eyes onto the top bead, and your good to go!
This is a little craft we did for our Bible Verse. I wrote the verse on the Popcicle stick and the children picked out patterend paper to cut the wings from. Then they glued the wings on the back, and put on some googly eyes.
