Supplies for Popsicle Stick Ladybugs:

  • Popsicle Sticks {12 per ladybug}
  • School Glue
  • Red Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Black Cardstock
  • Scissors
  • Small Heart Paper Punch






First assemble the base of your ladybug. For each, simply glue your popsicle sticks together to look like a fence {depending on the size of your popsicle sticks, 10 next to each other and two across to make a single fence} Repeat for each one you want to make and set aside to let them dry completely.

Next have your child paint the front of the popsicle stick fence completely red.

Now cut out a half-circle and some antennas from the black cardstock out for the ladybug’s head. Go ahead and also punch some small hearts for the ladybug’s iconic dots.

To finish off the Popsicle Stick Ladybugs kid craft, glue on the paper embellishments to the front and let it all dry completely, before displaying proudly. You can also add other embellishments to really make it your own {like glitter!}
