Cicada Craft Activity for Kids
May 8 - May 16
Join Ms. Tami from the Mission Valley Library for a fun craft for kids! Children can watch the instructional video below and make a paper origami cicada that actually moves! This fun nature craft celebrates the arrival of billions of Brood X cicadas–noisy insects that only emerge once every 17 years from their underground abodes! This amazing event will occur primarily in the eastern part of the United States, where the Brood X cicadas will come out to mature, forage, mate and lay eggs, starting the 17-year cycle again. With this fun video craft, you’ll be able to make your own cicada at home!
Age Range: 4-9 years old
Materials Needed: Any kind of paper, cut into a 6″ square; tape; string that is approximately 5 feet long
