Children create these little critters that make any space a happy place!

This activity is appropriate for:
pre-k - 3rd grade / 4 - 8 years

You will need:

Directions

  1. Wash and dry the stones.
  2. Paint the stones red for realistic ladybugs or any other color for fantasy bugs. Put aside to dry. (Note: You can add another coat or two for more intense color, if desired.)
  3. Use black paint to make a half-moon shape along the top of the stone for the head.
  4. Use a fine-tip black marker to draw a line from the midpoint of the head down the center of the bug.
  5. Use the black paint again to add spots on both sides of the center line.
  6. When the paint dries, an adult should spray the stones with acrylic sealer spray. Set aside to dry.
  7. Attach wiggly eyes to each “bug” with white craft glue.
  8. Your ladybug is ready to celebrate spring!
