Dragonfly Pencil

These easy dragonfly pencils are guaranteed to spark some creative writing.  A fellow SK teacher, Ms. Burruss made them with the kids and I had to share.

Top Row - 3 pipe cleaners and a pencil.  Form 2 pipe cleaners into circles.  Slightly smoosh the circles so they are ovals.  You made wings!

Middle Row - Twist the top of the 3rd pipe cleaner into a small loop for the head.  Here is the head.  Now, twist the 3rd pipe cleaner around the wings a few times.

Bottom Row - You have a dragonfly!  Twist the body around the pencil.  Sharpen the pencil and let the words fly.

Hmmm....now what to write about....
