Red Paper Plate (or a white one which can be painted red)
Elmer’s Glue Stick
1 pair of googly eyes
6 pom poms
2 pipe cleaners
Directions: This is a very simple craft that even the youngest child can participate in. You have 2 options for the plate. You can either use a white disposable plate and have your child paint it red, or you can do as I did and use a red plate. Flip it over on a flat surface so that the bottom of the plate is facing up. Then take your black marker and draw a straight line down the middle of the plate about 2/3 of the way down, then make a semi-circle like you see below.
Using your Elmer’s Glue Stick attach 3 pom-poms to each side of the ladybug, then attach the googly eyes as shown above. Next you’ll need to work on the legs. I took one pipe cleaner, folded it in 3 equal parts, then cut it at each fold so that I had 3 equal pipe cleaner pieces. Do this for both ‘legs’. Then take a pair of scissors and poke 3 small holes on each side of the ladybug. Insert pipe cleaners and twist as needed to make legs stick.
