Ladybug projects

I'm a Little Ladybug
(to the tune of: I'm a little teapot)
I'm a little ladybug, as you can see.
I am a beetle, pretty as can be.
I am brightly colored, red and black.
Look at the pretty spots on my back.

I picked this cute idea up from a craft store. You will need a small flower pot, red and black paint, eyes, pipe cleaner, paint brushes, and hot glue. We used a small pom-pom to dot on the spots. These pots will be a great grandparent gift. I also thought that you could easily make them into bunnies for Easter and fill them with grass and candy.

We are just about to order our ladybug kits from Insect Lore here . It's always fun to watch them grow and set them free in our garden.

Ladybugs all dressed in red,
Strolling through the flower bed.
If I were tiny, just like you...
I'd creep among the flowers too!
