We’ve been studying ladybugs a lot lately and currently have a ladybug habitat in full hatching swing. It’s that creepy-cool science that we love with a healthy dose of “if those things get out, we’re going to have a problem.” Know what I mean?
So, between reading books like Ladybug Girl by Jacky Davis and stocking up on ladybug facts, we, of course, needed to make a quick kids’ craft to go along with our study. Enter the quick and easy ladybug headband. With just a few simple supplies, kids can whip up a headband to wear as they navigate a ladybug unit study or when they’re helping in the garden. Either way, the craft will take about 15-minutes total and makes for a perfect learning-in-progress photo prop!
