Green tempera paint, blue liquid watercolor paint, and a black bingo marker for the spots on the ladybug.

Each child will need scissors and glue bottle. A q-tip will be needed for each child to smooth the glue.


Steps that already occurred…

The liquid blue watercolor paint was used to paint the background paper.

The body of the ladybug was drawn on black construction paper.

A 6-inch diameter circle was drawn on a piece of white cardstock.

The tissue paper was already cut into one inch squares.


Next Steps:

Have students write their name on back of blue background paper.

Next, students will glue the tissue paper squares to cover the cardstock white circle. When this is completed, the children will cut the circle out from the cardstock and then cut the circle in half to form two wings.


Next Steps:

Cut the body out of the black construction paper and glue body to the paper. Then glue the wings.

Have students then add eyes and antennas with glue to the lady bug.


Next Steps:

Glue the strip of white cardstock to the bottom of the page to represent grass and then used the fork dipped in the green tempera paint to stamp out the grass.
