We are still learning all about insects. We finished our study on bees and are now learning all about Ladybugs. I though I would kick off our study by making ladybug stones. The kids had a blast!
We used relatively flat stones and colored them red with tempera paint. You could also use waterproof paint, particularly if you plan on putting them outside!
By the way, the picture below is not very good. It was very dark when I took it and it doesn't do our ladybugs justice. Just know that they are much cuter in real life ;)
