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.

What you’ll need:

  • Paper plates
  • Red and black paint
  • Brushes
  • Scissors
  • Googly eyes
  • Glue

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.
