This ladybug is made from a cardboard soap box. If you purchase a generic
soap the box might not have a label on it. In that case, have the children paint the box black. If your soap box has a colored label,
in advance, spray paint it black.
Give the children red and black construction paper scraps to make a ladybug. The ladybug shown is made with a 5" x 5" piece of construction
paper. The corners were rounded and then the piece was cut in half to make wings. The head was made by rounding two corners of a 2.5" x 2"
piece of black paper. The dots are made from rounding .5" x .5" black
squares. The antennae are made from scraps.
If your purpose of the project is art, simply give the children the box and scraps and let them do as they wish. If the purpose of your project is for
following directions, precut pieces for them.
