Our Firefly 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.
Light Up Firefly Craft
For our Firefly Craft I cut out body parts of a firefly, and let the children glue them together. Then we used Glow-Stick Bracelets,and using tacky glue, stuck them on the bottom of the firefly to make him “light
up” This was super easy and the kids loved it…of course I let them wear the rest of the bracelets too (we picked upa pack of 15 bracelets from Michaels Crafts in their Dollar bins)
