Fireflies are an iconic symbol of a simple, balmy summer evening. When dusk creeps over the day, grab your flip-flops and mason jars and head outside to find the lovely bugs that will give you lightning in a jar. 

Whether you have fireflies in your area of the country or not, this Firefly Poetry and Craft with free printable will be a fun activity for your kids! It was created to accompany the book When Lightning Comes in a Jar by Patricia Polacco, but they’ll have fun even if they haven’t read the book.
