Summer days can be pretty long for both preschoolers and their parents. One way to spend time together and have fun is with arts and crafts. To keep them engaged and excited, it's best to incorporate their interests into the crafts. Enter bugs. These five crafts are bound to keep your child entertained and happy.
Rachel from I Heart Crafty Things takes a character from the award-winning book Leo the Lightning Bug and brings Leo to life. On her website she offers a downloadable and printable PDF for the body. The only other thing you need is a clothespin to make a Leo of your own.
How cute is this ladybug? Vivian from Craft with Confidence offers an awesome tutorial for making a stuffed ladybug buddy. This is one craft to definitely work on as a family, because it does require a little bit of sewing.
Now these are some cute bugs! Using just spoons, pipe cleaners, googly eyes and glue, the ladies of Paging Fun Mums will show you and your child how to make your own. With a little creativity, you can add even more detail to these cute bugs and make them your own.
What is better than a bug craft? A craft that will let you go out and hunt for bugs when it's done! Carissa of Creative Green Living repurposed a glass jar with a lid into a bug jar to store captured critters.
To make any of these fun bug crafts, be sure to visit the websites listed above. You and your child can have hours of entertainment crafting together this summer.
