An easy ladybug craft using an empty toilet roll:
Materials per lady bug:
A5 size paper
black crayon / pencil
Draw ladybug wings on paper.(Adult may need to do this)
Paint the wings red.
Let them dry.
Cut them out (mom or pre-schooler or both!)
Draw black dots on the wings.
Paste wings to toilet-roll body.
You can add legs and feelers - but it still looks like the real thing even without it.
I used this craft in two ways - as introduction to letter "L" and as a counting exercise with the dots.
