At Foxglove Spires we were very fortunate to find a baby lady beetle on our window sill. The little thing was so very tinny but also very beautiful. We picked the Lady Beetle up ever so carefully and then we carried her out to the garden where she would be at home amongst the beautiful plants.
Afterwards we made a picture of the Lady Beetle for our Spring hangings....
First we cut a four petal flower shape out of coloured paper
Then folded it in half
We folded the two longer sides down towards the bottom petal
The pointy edge we folded under and then folded half that amount back again.
We left one of the beetles wings flat and
The other we position the wings to fly
We then glued little black circles cut from coloured paper
and then arranged the Lady Beetles on some cardboard.
My princess coloured the sky, grass and a strawberry onto the board before gluing the lady Beetles on.
Our spring Lady Beetles.
