Remember when you were a kid how magical it was when the summer sun finally set at the end of the day and the fireflies came out and you never wanted to come inside even though your older sister told you your house was built on a graveyard and the zombies would come out at night? Well, here’s a super quick craft to help your kids feel a little bit of that magic.

These fireflies are super easy to make. Just pop a flameless LED tealight into a plastic Easter egg. You don’t even need glue! Poke holes through the egg with a thumbtack to insert the pipe cleaners. The eyes are drawn onto white sticky labels, and the wings are silver duct tape. Quick, easy, and totally cute!
