Make Fireflies That Really Light Up

Hope you kept your little plastic Easter eggs!  Here’s a really cute craft the kids will love!

Makes for great evening Easter egg hunt!


These fireflies are super easy to make. Just pop a flameless LED tealight into a plastic Easter egg. You don’t even need glue! Poke holes through the egg with a thumbtack to insert the pipe cleaners. The eyes are drawn onto white sticky labels, and the wings are silver duct tape. Quick, easy, and totally cute!

Another  idea is to use glow sticks instead of the lights.  Snap em off, pop em in and you’re good to go!

Well, here’s a super quick craft to help your kids feel a little bit of that magic.
