Are your kids crazy about bugs? We are fans of all things ladybug!

by Melissa

We love to see them in our garden eating harmful pests, plus I hear it’s good luck if one lands on you! Shared below is an adorable Cupcake Liner Ladybug Craft, perfect for kids of all ages.


This craft is fun for home, school, or camp because it requires minimal, basic craft supplies. It’s especially frugal and perfect for little hands!

Materials and Directions:

  • Red cupcake liners
  • White paper
  • Construction paper
  • Silver or white Sharpie marker or crayon
  • Glue
  • Black pen or marker
  • Wiggly Eyes
  • Optional: circle and flower paper punch

After gathering supplies, flatten the red cupcake liner and glue it to a piece of white paper.

Use the round paper punch or a black marker to put dots on the ladybug. Invite your child to use the black pen/marker to draw legs and antennae on the ladybug. Use the silver/white Sharpie or crayon to draw a sweet little smile onto the ladybug’s face, then attach 1 wiggly eye to the ladybug with glue.

If desired, use a flower paper punch to create a colorful garden for the cupcake liner ladybug. Kids could also draw flowers with markers or crayons.
