Project Instructions:

  1. Cut the paper plate in half. 
  2. Trace the two pieces of plate on red construction paper. These will be the wings of the lady bug.
  3. Flip paper plate pieces over so the bottom is facing up. Glue the red construction paper to the plate pieces.
  4. Draw an oval on your black piece of paper and add your antennas to the top. Cut it out. 
  5. Draw some circles on your black piece of paper. These will be your ladybug spots. These can be different sizes and that's okay!
  6. We are going to put our wings together now. Put a little bit of glue on the front at the top of one wing and overlap the top of the other wing. Press together and allow to dry.
  7. Glue the ladybug circles to your wings.
  8. Turn the wings over and place some glue on the bottom of the ladybug head. Place your ladybug head at the top of the wings.
  9. Take a little bit of leftover black paper and place the ladybug on top. Trace the opening in between your wings onto your sheet of paper (this will be a triangle shape). Now cut out.
  10. Apply glue to the sides and top of your triangle, flip your ladybug over to the back again and glue into the middle.
  11. Draw 6 ladybug legs on the black construction paper with your pencil. Cut out.
  12. Flip the ladybug over (white side up). Glue 3 legs to each side of the plate. 
  13. Use glitter glue to make eyes on the head of the ladybug.

Now your have your very own lucky lady bug!!!
