How to make your ladybird

How to make your ladybird

  1. Carefully cut out one section from the egg box (an adult may need to do this as it is quite fiddly).
  2. Paint the whole thing red.
  3. Use black paint to paint the face and the spots. Top tip – a cotton bud is great for printing the spots all over the ladybirds body – just dip it in the paint and print.
  4. Add a smile using white paint and glue on some googly eyes.

Your child might come up with other ideas to transform your egg carton shapes – maybe they could become aliens, hedgehogs or several threaded together could make a wiggly snake? As ever let your children come up with their own ideas too.
