Ladybugs are seen as a symbol of spring, and we’re in awe of these pretty creatures! Celebrate them with these cute ladybug crafts for kids.
If you’re like most people, your first instinct on seeing a bug would be to either squash it or run away screaming, but not after giving out some expression of disgust. It’s natural I guess, feeling disgusted at bugs – at least that makes me feel normal!
But all this goes out the window when we see ladybugs. That gorgeous red color with contrasting black dots on it – it’s an example of Mother Nature‘s wonders. There are also ladybugs in orange, grey and even blue!
So this spring, we’re celebrating these tiny creatures which aren’t really bugs – they’re beetles! And we’re doing it the way we know best – by making some cute crafts!
