This is a cute lady bug made from paper plates.

Approximate Time 35 minutes



Take one paper plate and paint it all black, this is the body. Then take another paper plate and cut in half and paint whatever color you want the wings. Let all dry, then paint your spots on the wings. Take another plate and cut a small half circle like in picture, paint it black. When it dries, paint on eyes . Glue wings on body, then the head on. This a perfect craft for Bible school or summer camp, very inexpensive.

And, if you painted another plate black, cut out the

black "V" in the yellow plate, then glued them together you would have a floor target for those sponge-bullet guns kids love. They never know what to shoot at. This could be not only a good target, but if shot just right, it would move forward with the

pressure of the sponge bullet. CUTE!! God Bless you. : )
