Extra Tips

  • Turn it into a card. Let them write a memo for someone.
  • Decorate this little bug in the bedroom
  • Create other insects and let them distinguish them each.
  • A fun way for them to learn counting is by allowing them to paint spots depending on the number requested.
  • Instead of painting the spots, cut black circles and let them put the spots in the ladybug. This will help improve their motor skills.
  • Create numerous ladybugs and paint them in different rainbow colors. Use the ladybug to practice them to differentiate various colors of the rainbow.

  1. My preschooler made this for his school activity. I’m so proud

  2. Easy peasy 🙂

  3. I followed all the tips except for this one ‘Create other insects and let them distinguish them each’. this is too hard, anyways I’m an adult with too much time! Made like 10 of these 😭😆🤣

  4. I love this website. Every night I pick an activity. And I prepare the tools and supplies – I can then leave the kids and give them a reward when I get home if they finish the craft well. The older one’s 9 and the other’s 7

  5. First time making a paper plate craft
