Virtual Refrigerator


Welcome to another week of the Virtual Refrigerator. Our weekly blog hop is co-hosted by Angels of Heart, Every Bed of Roses, Homeschool Coffee Break, and a Glimpse of our Life. Link up your art tutorials or projects that your children have been working on. Then pin the same to our virtual fridge by joining our group pinterest board, just ask any of us to add you.

The cicadas in the woods around us are not on their way back underground yet. Their loud hum helps keep them on our mind, so it just seemed fitting to integrate them into our art this week. In my research I found this link for origami cicadas. My oldest daughter said it looked like a fly, but she helped us recreate them and they do look a bit like the cicadas here right when they shed their shell. A bit of cicada anatomy is even included with the instructions. If you missed it and are interested, you can read a lot more about the insects here.

    1. Did he try it? The example at the link uses double sided paper or wrapping paper which would give it a different appearance than our tissue paper.
