I am still on my ladybug themed crafts kick so here is an easy kids craft inspired by ladybug colors that is cheap and fun to make. This is a great addition to a party as an activity that also doubles as a favor that kids can take home. You can also use this in a learning unit and incorporate math along with hand eye coordination! I hope you and your children have lots of fun with this ladybug Inspired necklace Craft.
What you need:
- paper straws, white with black polka dots
- red ribbon (or string)
How to make:
Depending on the ages and how long you want your necklaces to be, measure the ribbon to make a loop and then add 4 inches to tie a bow.
Cut the Paper Straws into pieces to lace onto the ribbon. (You can make them symmetrical in size or various lengths).
Have children thread the straw pieces onto the ribbon leaving spaces in between so that the red shows through. Also leave space at the ends so that you can tie it in a knot or bow.
You are done!
