Damselflies and Fall Leaves

After we "did" crickets and dragonflies, we covered damselflies. Our little class was lucky enough to see a tiny, bright red damselfly outside on one of our first days of co-op. We made damselflies out of wire, beads and pipe cleaners. I thought they turned out really well. Tutorial to come.
We made fall leaves out of polymer clay the same day. Painting them with gold paint takes immense concentration. (above) This is a really great fall craft that is fun to take home and keep. They are pretty successful for most any age, and make a nice introduction to clay work. I made this up a few years ago for my co-op art classes, and it is "pinned" many times on Pinterest. Here are instructions.
