The best time of year to observe insects is in the spring. After a long hibernation, they are hungry little buggers. They come out immediately when it turns warm to find food.
Currently, my son and I are studying ladybugs. We are hoping to see a few in our yard soon. While we were waiting, I had him create a ladybug counting hat craft. This is an easy project. Just follow the simple instructions below.
To make this a learning activity, we used the sticky black dots to brush up on counting, adding, and simple subtracting skills.
- construction paper black and red
- black pipe cleaners
- googly eyes
- white crayon
- glue stick
- black circular stickers
- Cut a thick red strip of construction paper.
- Cut a half circle in black construction paper, glue on red construction paper.
- Add googly eyes.
- Draw month with white crayon.
- Add on pipe cleaners.
- Add on sticky dots.
- Staple strip around the child’s head.
