These little bugs were so cute and FUN to make!
We had a fair few plastic spoons left over from my daughters birthday and I remembered a similar bug craft we have done in the past using bottle caps (here is that link – http://wp.me/p2Uher-v9 ).
Pipe cleaners (3 per bug)
Firstly & carefully bend & snap off the ends of the plastic spoons to shorten the length. Then tape them together as seen below. Wrap the pipe cleaners around the spoon to make legs and then add googly eyes.
My daughter thought they would make a great hair accessory too ;).
We also thought it would be fun to make a butterfly so we followed the same steps as above but added wings to the wrapped pipe cleaners using cardstock that my daughter had coloured in.
So simple but so much FUN!
These would be perfect as a planned group activity in a school or playgroup setting, or it’s something fun and simple to do at home with the kids too.
