Styrofoam Lady Bug

We see them all over on the plants and in the grass in the warm months. Children know at a young age that they do no harm, and like to catch them and watch them crawl on their hands.



Summer Craft for Kids -  Cute Styrofoam Lady Bug Craft

For this project you will need:

- 6cm styrofoam ball for the body and a 4 cm styrofoam ball for the head
- one pair of 1 cm wiggly eyes
- black and red acrylic paint
- paintbrushes
- toothpick
- tacky glue
- chenille for the legs

Recommended for ages 6 and up


1. Cut each styrofoam ball in half. Paint the smaller half black and the larger half red. Let both dry. Then paint spots on the body half and let it dry again.
2. Use the toothpick and poke 3 holes on each side of the body half. Then cut chenille into 7-8 cm pieces. Then take each piece and add tacky glue on one end and insert that end into one of the holes. Repeat for the remaining 5 holes.
3. Insert and glue a toothpick halfway through the front of the bug where the head will be placed. Cover the flat side of the head with glue and then press it onto the body piece with the flat end facing the body. You may want to hold these parts together for a short time until the glue starts to dry some.
4. Glue on 2 wiggly eyes and your bug is finished.
