This is a great summer time craft since lightning bugs should be plentiful. And it’s so easy to collect fireflies, when all you need to do is cut them out from the template and glue them inside the jar. Use fluorescence yellow paint and press on the yellow portion of the bug and they’ll even glow in the dark, just like the real deal. Count them to see how many you have!
August 1 is National Spiderman Day, so let’s make a spider to celebrate. This spider is great for preschoolers because he knows how to count to eight, one for each leg. He also likes to eat cupcakes too! Yum, this spider has good taste, doesn’t he?

Mosaics are beautiful designs made up of small pieces of glass, stones, pottery pieces and other materials. An artist arranges the tiny pieces according to their shape and color and creates images or patterns. The pieces can be set in plaster or cement and used to decorate walls, floors and ceilings in homes, places of worship and other important buildings.
