Popsicle Stick Dragonfly Craft for Preschoolers

Did you know that a dragonfly can predict the weather?

In some parts of the world, it is believed that if the dragonfly flies high it will be sunny and if it flies low there will be rain.

I am not sure how true it is, but dragonflies are definitely fascinating creatures that captivate the imagination of kids with their vibrant colors and graceful flight.

You can see a dragonfly in different colors and hence you can play with a lot of colors when doing a dragonfly craft.

If you are looking for an easy dragonfly craft for preschoolers, try this one. This craft requires only 4 materials and a little bit of assistance from an adult to use a hot glue gun.

This craft provides a wonderful opportunity to teach children about these amazing insects while also allowing them to express their creativity.

The next step is to make the wings of the dragonfly.

Make sure you glue them together in a criss-cross position.
