Painted Dragonfly Made From Maple Tree Seeds
Here’s another cute idea using maple tree seeds
The propeller shaped seeds from maple trees form the wings of these delicate dragonflies. For each, place four maple seeds on your work surface with their ends meeting as shown above. Add a drop of tacky glue to each end, then rest a 4-inch twig on top. Let the glue dry. (A hot glue gun can be used instead, if an adult helps.) Turn over the dragonfly and add a line of glitter glue to the edge of each wing. Attach two small glass bead eyes with glue.
Not only would these be a great craft to do with kids, but I think I could have plenty of fun making these myself!
