Dragonfly Cards made with Sycamore Seeds

We discovered these beautiful dragonflies while playing with paint today. 


We used; card, paint, a small paintbrush, double sided sticky pads, & sycamore seeds.

We took a sheet of card, folded & cut to the size we wanted. Minnie used a small paintbrush to mix the different colours of paint, before adding the stripes to the card.



We added sycamore seeds to the card using sticky pads, & our dragonflies were complete.


Then Minnie had a go at finger painting a few more.


A great set of simple greeting cards ready to fly off to a friend or two.

  5. What a neat idea, I don't know if we have seed pods like this but leaves might do the trick!

  6. A silly aside: I thought those looked like maple seeds, so I looked it up.

    Now I know that maples and sycamores are in the same family.
    So, in addition to the craft, I learned something today! Thanks!
