Ladybird craft for kids step-by-step
Using a pencil, draw a circle around a mug or cup on the black card and then do the same on the red card.
Cut out both circles using safety scissors.
Fold the red circle in half and hole punch as many times as you like, this creates the spots on the wings.
Unfold the circle and cut all the way down the fold using safety scissors.
Add glue to the tip of both wings and stick to the centre of the black circle.
To finish off, add two small white circle stickers to the top of the black circle. Using the black felt tip pen add a black dot inside each circle to create the ladybird’s eyes.
