This summer there were a ton of fireflies around here. They are fun to watch light up the night. We read the book, “The Very Lonely Firefly” by Eric this week. This book follows a firefly as he searches for some firefly friends. On his journey he meets several sources of light until he finally finds his friends. I was disappointed that the copy of the book from the library was broken so the fireflies didn’t light up in the back.
We made a firefly picture for our art project. First we used white and yellow crayons on black paper to make a night-time scene (moon and stars). Next we used colored band-aids to make the fireflies. For the glow we dabbed some yellow puffy paint on the end of his tail. Last, we added wiggly eyes.
