How to make your ladybird
- Carefully cut out one section from the egg box (an adult may need to do this as it is quite fiddly).
- Paint the whole thing red.
- 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.
- 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.
