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!
