I have never seen a firefly in real life, but I have been in love with them since... well, forever. In books, movies, and even paintings/sketches they always appear magic and mysterious. Don't they?
So I have decided to create some of my own. I thought I'd order parts to create throwies, put them in a glass jar I already have ($1 at my local Honk's) and see how it turned out. However, today I found a post about faux fireflies that a woman had made with small knobs and glow-in-the-dark paint. Much simpler, much cheaper, and much more kid-friendly. (Though I'm still determined to try the throwies.)
site. How cute is this?! First, I'll make her version because the ingredients to create hers I can find locally. When my order of LED diodes and batteries get here, I'll make that version and let you know how it turns out.
