Every once in awhile I get in the mood for some kid crafts. I have no idea why. I guess in some ways I really am just a kid at heart. Like when I came up with the BUGGLES CRAFT (that is still one of my most popular posts) and that easy insect craft I shared with Juggling Act Mama awhile ago. Well, I’ve been at it again and today I’ve got another quick bug craft to make with your kids. This one is a Clothespin Dragonfly Craft. I had all the stuff for this craft at home and hopefully it will provide some busy creative time for your kiddos during the boring summer months ahead. You can also easily make this into a Valentine’s Day dragonfly craft. Who wouldn’t love make a fun little Valentine dragonfly with clothespins and gems? This also works as a great preschool bug craft too.

This easy clothespin craft only takes kids about 10 minutes. You will need to allow time for the glue to dry. Check out the video below for the quick demo of this dragonfly craft.
