Are you and the kids looking for a super cute and easy craft? These DIY Light Up Fireflies are great for Spring Time and Summer Time.
Trust me the kids will have fun making these and watching them light up at night. With just a few supplies you will be on your way to making this fun spring time craft. This is a great time to make this craft as you will need plastic Easter Eggs.

How To Make Light Up Fireflies
Start by making a couple of holes in the top of the egg and back of egg (use a push pin). Next super glue the eyes on, then cut your fuzzy sticks to size you want place the fuzzy sticks in the holes you made and bend to your liking. Then cut out tin foil to make the wings and glue in place. Place tea light inside egg wait for dark and light up those fireflies. Guaranteed fun and excitement with this DIY Firefly Craft.
