Bottlecap Ladybugs

SONY DSC

My granddaughter and I had a little bit of crafting time last week, while I was babysitting.  She is 3 1/2 now and when I watch her we seem to go from watching television, to dressing up in my high heels and jewelry, to making a secret hiding place in the hall closet {with plump pillows and a flashlight, of course}.  This particular rainy, windy day she came into my craft/sewing room with me and saw some bottle caps I had been saving.

Since we had bought a variety package of googly eyes just the week before, I thought we might try making ladybugs.  I grabbed some red, black, and white craft paint; six bottle caps; the googly eyes; and a couple of paint brushes.  We painted the bottle caps red first.

Once they dried, we added our black dots.  My granddaughter told me that they have white dots, too, so we added a few of them.

Once the dots dried, I hot glued on the googly eyes.

When she came over again, we made a trip to the craft store to get some magnets and added them to the back.

This was a good, quick craft project to do with a little one.  It was just long enough to keep her attention and actually complete a project!

What fun we have with little ones. I really like your lady bugs. They keep us young and have so much enjoyment with them whether crafting or baking cookies. They grow up so very fast. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

These are so cute! What a great crafting project. You're such a great Grandmother do make these with her! I'm not getting my feed to your blog anymore- sorry for the late visit. I think Feedburner is messed up from what I'm reading.
