We did this super simple craft for the letter L today with no planning whatsoever. Sometimes I get lucky.
We had some foam bowls kicking around and I thought they’d make good ladybug bodies, so we painted them red (I use this washable paint and yes, it came out of Eliza’s shirt). We glued on some black paper circles and left them to dry.
To finish them off, we poked pipe cleaners through the foam and twisted them around to make legs. SO easy. The kiddos had a lot of fun playing with their ladybugs, and they were pretty mutilated by the end of the day. Easy come, easy go.
Oh! We also read this book. Not a great story line, but the kids love the little ladybug finger puppet.
