Storytime & Craft: Fireflies!
I know it is not technically "summer" yet, but the hot weather and lots of outdoor time sure has me thinking it is! That must be why I wanted to do some fun things about fireflies with T. After reading "Fireflies!" which is about a boy and his neighbors spending the evening catching fireflies in a jar, we "caught" our own.
Not sure of the original source, but this is where I found the idea searching the web. If anyone knows the source, please let me know!!
To "catch" your own fireflies, you'll need:
* clean and clear jar
*glow in the dark paint
*thin bristle paint brush
You are going to stick the paintbrush about halfway in the jar and tap it against the sides so the paint splatters everywhere. After you've made a big ol' mess, put your jar somewhere it'll get lots of light.
Definitely check out the link above for the picture of the project-- it is wayyyyy cool. I would put it on my page, but I am not sure of the original source! Here is a very edited version of our fireflies!! My camera was not interested in capturing the glow in the dark paint.
