Primary TechniquePaper Crafts
2 paper plates
acrylic paint in black and your choice of colors
2 large googly eyes
E6000 glue or glue stick
Paint one paper plate black and the other in whatever color you choose. Red is traditional for ladybugs, but you can get colorful like we did if you like. Set aside to dry.
From black felt, cut out half a circle for the head. Use a jar, small bowl, or cup to trace a circle onto the fabric.
