Virtual ABC Come Play with Me: The Very Lonely Firefly

The Very Lonely Firefly
  1. Read The Very Lonely Firefly, by Eric Carle.
  2. Supplies you will need: dark paper, small amount of yellow paint, crayons or colored pencils.
  3. Help children dip their thumb in yellow paint and make thumbprints on dark paper to create lots of fireflies. Once the paint dries, they can add wings, eyes, and tiny swirls representing the flight path of the fireflies. Children can also draw on a lid to their jar. Adults can help cut out the shape of the jar. Example
