Busy Little Lady Bugs



  • ~ 3 paper plates per child
  • ~ Markers or crayons
  • ~ Scissors
  • ~ Paper fasteners
  • ~ Tape


  • Cut the first paper plate in half to make the ladybug's wings.
  • Punch a hole at the top of each wing. Use markers to add spots.
  • Cut out the round center of the second plate. This will become the ladybug's head.
  • Punch two holes at the top of the head for the pipe cleaners to go through to form antennae. Use a marker to add eyes.
  • Punch a hole in the top center of the third plate. This plate is the ladybug's body.
  • Use the paper fastener to attach the wings to the body.
  • Tape the ladybug's head onto the back of the body.
