Dragonfly Kids Craft with Buttons and Popsicle Sticks

Spring is nearly here, and I am starting see the dragonflies in the yard. I love the way they fly so gracefully around the flowers. I used to keep the dead dragonflies I found in a magnifying case for my students to examine when I was a teacher. My kids also loved looking through the dragonfly eye glasses I kept in the classroom too. And, this button dragonfly kids craft project was always one of our favorites.

Dragonfly Preschool Craft Project Supplies:

  • Buttons.
  • Craft stick.
  • School glue.
  • Pipe cleaner.

Dragonflies have been on the earth since the dinosaurs roamed, and their fossils can be found all over. They are a food source in some parts of Asia, and a medicine in other parts. While I can’t imagine eating one, I do enjoy watching them float through the sky!

Let’s get started. First, gather your supplies. You will needs eight to ten buttons, a popsicle craft stick, a pipe cleaner, and school glue to make this dragonfly kids craft. I used a larger button for the head, and smaller ones for the body.

Now that you have all of your supplies, add a thin line of glue on the popsicle craft stick. Then, line the buttons up on the craft stick over the glue.

Next, twist the pipe cleaner into a figure eight shape, securing the ends together with a few twists. Then, glue the pipe cleaner to the back side of the craft stick. You may need to hold the pipe cleaner in place for a minute or two while the glue dries. Or, you could use a hot glue gun.
