This activity is a simple activity using egg cartons to create a cut ladybird.

Time: 30-40 minutes
Age: 5 to 10s with parental guidance
Level: Medium

Materials
1 egg carton
Red and black paint
Paint brush
2 small googly eyes
Pipe cleaner(Chenille stick)
Scissors
Liquid glue

Method
Cut an egg carton such that it has even borders. Inverted, it should be able to stand flat.



Draw a line on top such that one portion is slightly more than half.

Paint the smaller portion in black and other in red. Black will be the head portion and red will be the body of the ladybird.



On the body, draw a vertical line through the centre in black.

With the back of the paint brush draw black dots throughout the body (red part)



On the head, mark the place where you will glue the eyes. Glue the googly eyes.



Exactly above that, make 2 small holes for the antennae. Use a pointed scissor with blades closed to make the holes. Here, I would advise the parent to step in.

Also make 6 holes, 3 on each side, on the lower part of the body for the legs.

Cut 6 equal portions of the pipe cleaner, 2 inches long for the legs and 1 inch long pieces for the antennae.

Just put a drop of the liquid glue on the holes and pass the pipe cleaner through the hole.




Once dry and stable, bend the legs to give the bug-like look.

This bug is ready to leap


Your creepy crawly ladybird is ready.

Who is crawling on my plants?
