Who else is excited for all things spring? Even if that includes bugs. Am I excited for bugs? Well, you know. But I am excited for our darling and simple Easy Fingerprint Ladybug Craft. We’ve even included a Free Template for the circles needed.
I love fingerprint crafts. It’s a great way to get even the littlest ones playing with paint and creating. Plus, the end results are always unique and a great keepsake for that moment in time.
Make a Paper Ladybug Craft with Fingerprints
To make our Easy Fingerprint Ladybug Craft you will need our Ladybug Circle Template, as well as cardstock in red and black, small googly eyes, black paint, scissors, and a glue stick.
Paper Ladybug Fingerprint Craft Supplies Needed
- Ladybug Circle Template
- Cardstock – red, black
- Black acrylic paint
- Googly eyes, small
- Glue stick
Fingerprint Ladybug Craft Step by Step Instructions
Begin by printing the circle template. Cut out the large circle. You can then print another template for the smaller circle.
Trace and cut the larger of the circles on black cardstock. Trace and cut out the smaller circle on red cardstock.
Cut the red circle in half.
Now, glue the red wings to the black circle, with the top of the wings touching.
Stick googly eyes in place.
Then, pour black paint in an open surface. This time we used our paint palette, but we also like to use paper plates.
Dip a finger in the paint.
And press onto the wings to form spots for the ladybug.
Continue until all spots are formed on both wings.
Such a super sweet, super easy, super spring craft!
