You can create dragonflies using wooden clothes pegs, paint (or markers) and paper.

What You Need:
What You Do:
  1. Give each student a wooden clothes peg.
  2. Using paint (whichever kind you have on hand), students can paint their clothes pegs. Watercolor works well and is easy to clean up. Magic markers work quite well for younger students.
  3. Once dry, children can glue paper (or foam) wings onto their dragonfly. They can also add raffia, chenille stems, googly eyes or other embellishments.
  4. Optional: teacher can glue a skewer stick to the clothes peg first (using hot glue) so it can be placed in a flower pot or outside in the garden.
