Bugs



 

In my journeys to find ideas and activities to keep the children busy and focused on the chosen themes. I found many resources that had fun ideas and activities from some wonderful people who are very dedicated to their chosen profession. This has made it so much easier to plan a themed program! I cannot take credit for any of the ideas contained on my pages; they are the result of many other's combined years in the early childhood profession.

These charming cutout ladybug invitations will have the whole neighborhood buzzing.

Materials: Red tagboard; black tagboard; pencil; scissors; a nickel; glue stick; hole puncher; black pipe cleaners; exacto knife; ruler; marker.
To Make: Cut out round shape of ladybug pieces from tagboard. Cut out 2 red pieces. Glue pieces in place. Trace around a nickel to make black dots; use marker or tagboard for black center line.
Place the 2 red pieces together, with decorated side on top. Punch holes through both layers of paper.
Cut two 3" pieces of pipe cleaner for antennae. String a length through each hole and twist ends to secure. Trim excess.
Use the exacto knife and ruler to lightly score invitations directly below black head section. Bend to open at scoring.
Write party information inside.

Love a Bug Game Plan
As children arrive, seat them at craft table to decorate egg-carton caterpillars. (15 minutes)
Take cardboard egg cartons and cut them in half length wise. Using bottom portions only, paint ahead of time strips in different colors. Have a table setup ahead of time with caterpillars for each child. Using glue, let children stick pom poms, pipe cleaners, googgly eyes, and whatever else you can think of to make some outstanding caterpillars.
