This cute little cardboard ladybug is a fun and easy peasy craft idea for you to make with your kids.
What you Need:
- Red and Black Card
- White Paper
- Hole Punch
- Use a beaker as a template to draw circles onto the red and black card. Cut these out, leave some of the black ones whole and cut the rest of the black and all of the red ones into half circles.
- Use a hole punch to create white and black circles from the paper and the scraps from the black card.
- Make a ladybug yourself as an example to show the children by starting with a full black circle as the body. Glue a black half circle along the top for the head, two partially open red half circles as the wings and then add the ladybugs spots and eyes.
- Sort all of the pieces into pile, hand over some glue sticks and let the kids make their own!
Suggestion: Sellotape string to each bug, hang them to a washing line and watch them flutter in the breeze.
