I am a farm girl, married to my high school sweetheart. We grew up on farms 9 miles apart and went through 12 years of school together. I liked him in grade school, but it took until we were Juniors in high school to get him interested in me as more than a friend. I have never lived more than 10 miles from home, except in college, but have travelled as far as France, Germany and Switzerland. We live on our own farm and have raised three of our six kids. The last three are growing up fast.
In our entomology class we were studying dragonflies. I like to Google the insect we are covering and look for craft ideas and activities. Dragonflies are so cool anyway, and we did some fun dragonfly crafts. We learned a little basic macramé with t-shirt yarn to make our first dragonflies. We added a loop under some of them so they could ride on hands and fly around. The instructions I liked are here.
We used the flat sides of old milk cartons to make "stained glass" dragonflies. I pre-outlined a dragonfly picture with black permanent markers, and the kids colored them in with colored permanent markers while I read aloud from their textbook. Let dry a bit or the markers will smear. If you have more time or older kids they could copy out the dragonfly themselves. Cut out when dry and hang in a window or from a lamp. I first saw this idea here.
