Constructing this model make is a great way of helping your child to develop their hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills as they cut, decorate and stick a range of materials together to create the glowing fire fly. Encourage your child to be as imaginative as they like with the design and look of their firefly. The make is a bit tricky in places, so be on hand if they need some help.
How to extend the magic
Why not help your child create a dangly display of fireflies to hang in their bedroom? You could make a mobile using an old coat hanger to dangle the glowing insects from.
