This cute summer dragonfly craft is a great activity to keep the kids busy over the summer holidays and it looks adorable too! We used a glue gun to make our little butterflies but it works with pva or tacky glue too; you just need to be a little extra patient!

Here’s what we used

  • Popsicle sticks
  • Tacky glue/glue gun/pva
  • Googly eyes
  • Pipe Cleaners
  • Scissors

How to make this cute summer dragonfly craft

Glue several smaller Pom poms across the length of the popsicle stick to make the body and a large one on the end to make the end. if you’re using pva or slow drying tacky glue then you will need to leave it a while to die.

Twist two pipe cleaners together in the middle to make a cross. Twist the centre of the pipe cleaners around the popsicle stick near the head and then bend each wing piece inwards and twist to secure.

Now twist another pipe cleaner around the stick at its centre and curl the ends around to make the antennae.

Glue on two Googly eyes and once dry your adorable popsicle stick dragonfly is ready to play with or display!
