Ladybird Craft

We are back with the third of the fun bugs Egg Carton Ladybird Craft. These little fun bugs are an easy craft for any age, they are simple and easy to make. Creating a ladybird is a great mini beast that kids can learn at school, they can count the spots and the legs. We love finding ladybirds in the garden, the Witches like to hold them and watch them fly off.

The Witches aged 2 and 4 have used egg cartons to make the Ladybird, just like the bumble bee craft and the spider craft which are part of the Fun Bugs we have created.

Egg Carton Ladybird Craft | Fun Bugs

Favourite Bug

I asked the Witches which Bug is your favourite? They named quite a few. I said to to them how about creating 2 Bugs each!! This can be quite a hand full having 2 Witches creating something together. I try to take photos and then 1 of the Witches waiting and then decides to get on with it her way. I actually do not mind this at all, its their website and they can create the crafts how they want to!! Haha!! This is all about doing easy crafts with your children!!

The Witches decided to make a Ladybird, Bumble Bee, Spider and a Grasshopper!!

Materials needed for the Whole Bug Craft:

  • egg carton box
  • pipe cleaners US
  • wiggly eyes US
  • black, red, yellow and green paint US
  • cellotape
  • scissors US
  • black felt/marker US

The Egg Carton Fun Bug Craft (4 bugs)

In this post we will only be showing you

how to make the Egg Carton Ladybird Craft!!

To make the Ladybird you will need:

  • red paint US
  • wiggly eyes US
  • cellotape
  • black pipe cleaners US
  • red pipe cleaners US
  • black marker US
  • sharp ended tool to pierce holes

Paint one of your egg cartons in red paint US

The part the Witches do not enjoy doing – waiting for the paint to dry!!

Now you can stick/glue on the wiggly eyes US (best place to stick these are on the smallest bit of the egg carton):

Draw on some black spot too:

Next you will need to make a bow with a red pipe cleaner US:

On the back of the ladybird, make a small hole. We used a tool with a sharp end to make the hole:

Feed the bow pipe cleaner through the hole, and tie it around to secure it:

Next you will need 2 small black pipe cleaners, and you need to make two small holes on top of the ladybirds head. Tie a knot on each of the pipe cleaners and feed them through the holes:
