Here is a close-up of his project. He decided to add the dragon fly onto a wire so that it would look like it was actually flying.
The kids had a great time making these and it really didn't take a long time at all. It was pretty much instant gratification. Instead of tiny pebbles for drainage we used a package of crushed shells (it was on sale). We "borrowed" some soil from a number of house plants because my Mommy brain forgot to buy a package of soil for the project!
