Paper Plate Ladybug Craft
I always been fascinated about ladybugs and because of it my girls are too. I taught them the songs about ladybugs in romanian and in english so they loved doing this little craft. Although it might seem a bit more difficult for a younger child it will be quite easy if you give them your guidance.
- Paper plates
- Red and black paint
- Googly eyes
How to make your Paper Plate Ladybug:
- Cut the paper plate in half. Paint one half in red and let it dry.
- Paint little black dots on it, antennas and a half circle for it’s face. Let this dry.
- Out of the other half of the plate 6 thin strips in the shape of little legs and paint them in black. Let them dry.
- Glue the googly eyes on to the face.
- Glue the legs on the back of the half red paper.
And this is what my girls managed to do each after their aptitudes – better the 7 year old and a bit more messy the 3 year old. We also made some bees using the same process only yellow paint and made them wings too.

These are so sweet! I love a fun and simple craft that the kids can do all by themselves, they’re perfect 🙂
Awww, super cute Otilia.
Pinned – I love these and the smiles. Crafting always is fun
These are so cute. My middle monkey loves anything to do with mini beasts and I’m sure I have a few paper plates left over from the summer birthday parties. A little bit of late summer craft x
Paper plates are brilliant for all sorts of crafts. The ladybirds work particularly well.
