Build Your Own Dragonflies

This dragonfly activity is super easy to complete with materials you likely already have at home!

You’ll need: a clothespin, 2 pipe cleaners, googly eyes, glue and paint


  1. Start by choosing one or more colors to paint stripes on the clothespin.
  2. Once the paint is dry, place two dollops of glue onto the top of the clothespin and add the googly eyes. You can also draw on eyes with black marker if you don’t have googly eyes at home.
  3. Next, take your pipe cleaner and fold both ends into the middle and twist. Do this with both pipe cleaners and then put them inside the clothespin.

We hope you enjoy this dragonfly craft!
