Lightning Bugs

I had mentioned that I wanted to post the kids' other library craft.

This is a cute and easy craft.  First, you need a Mt. Dew bottle with the label removed.  Next, Wrap three pipe cleaners around the body and twist underneath to make legs.  Cut a piece of construction paper to fit around the body and tape it in place.  Cut paper wings and tape them on top.  Take another pipe cleaner and wrap it around the neck for antennae.  On the lid, glue a small circle of construction paper, and then 2 googly eyes.  Lastly, and this is the really fun part, put a glow stick inside the bug.  They glow well and are really cute to "fly" around a dark room or outdoors.
