Paper Bag Ladybug Craft
- Paper bags
- Black acrylic paint
- Cardstock – red, black
- Circle punches – 2”, 1.5”, 1”, ⅝”
- Googly eyes, large
- White marker
- Glue stick
Begin by painting the front of the paper bag black.
Make sure you don’t paint the flap shut. We know this one from experience. Let dry.
Adhere large googly eyes in place. Then draw a simple mouth under the eyes with the white marker
Cut two strips from the black cardstock. Curl an end using your fingers or a pencil.
Glue the strips in place to the top of the bag.
Now, cut a large circle from the red cardstock.
Cut the circle in half.
Glue the circle halves under the flap, with the middle part open for wings.
Punch a bunch of circles from the black cardstock using the different paper punches. You can also use scissors, of course, if you don’t have paper punches.
And glue the circles all around the wings.
We have many more spring crafts for kids at Our Kid Things, too!
