Approximate Time:

Supplies:

  • plastic spoons
  • plaster of Paris
  • round magnets
  • black pipe cleaners
  • red and black paint
  • paint brush
  • glue

Instructions:

  1. Line up the plastic spoons in a box so that the spoon is balanced and flat. I used folded up newspaper taped to the box to create the level I needed, but you could also use a thin book, play dough, etc.
  2. Mix the plaster of paris by the directions on the box. Pour into each spoon.
  3. Place a round magnet into each plastered spoon and allow to dry. I let these dry overnight.
  4. Once they are dry, remove the plaster shape from the spoon.

  5. Paint the rounded side red and allow to dry.
  6. Add black ladybug markings such as a head, a line to represent wings, and spots. You can use paint, or a permanent marker if you wish to do it that way.
  7. Glue the black pipe cleaner to the magnet side of the shape, cutting to desired size. I used hot glue, but other glue may be used as well.
  8. Stick up on your fridge and enjoy!
