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.
