Southside’s Virtual Kids’ Club brings you egg carton ladybugs craft

Hi again Lillie! For Southside’s Virtual Kids’ Club, she’s making ladybugs out of egg boxes and she invites you to learn a rhyme about polka-dot ladybugs. Enjoy!

You will need:

  • Egg carton
  • Scissors
  • Glue Stick
  • Felt Pens or Paint
  • Pipe cleaners or straws
  • Paper or card
  • Googly eyes - optional

Step 1

Cut the egg cartons into individual cups. You might need help with this from a grown up. Paint or colour in the egg cup red.

Step 2

Cut a circle shape out of paper or card for the face. Colour or paint this black and draw the eyes, or stick on googly eyes if you have these.

Step 3

Cut up the pipe cleaners or straws to make antennae, if you don’t have these, cut some paper, colour this in black and roll up.

Step 4

Using a sharp pencil, poke holes through the front of the egg cup for the antennae. Ask a grown up for help with this. When you have finished this, stick the face on the front of the egg cup.


Step 5

Finish by drawing spots on the egg cup to complete your ladybird.
