We love minibeast activities at Arty Crafty Kids and this adorable Handprint Ladybug Craft has been designed with young children and preschoolers in mind.
Kids will enjoy the process of cutting and sticking to create their stained glass ‘leaf’ canvas, and the template is large enough for even the smallest of hands to have a go at cutting for themselves!

Cut out the template and trace round the body parts onto black card stock.
Cut out the traced ladybug shapes.
Cut up the coloured tissue paper into squares.
Coat the white card stock with a generous amount of PVA glue and layer the tissue paper to create a ‘leafy’ stained glass effect.
Secure the loose edges by spreading PVA glue across the tissue paper.
