Handprint Alphabet – L is for Ladybird

| June 30, 2012 | 9 Comments

Today we came back to a v simple but rather lovely handprint craft: the ladybird!! Pip Squeak was delighted. Red Ted, ahem, liked the red bit.. he actually wanted a lion. But we did a lion some moons ago, so, this mummy, fancied something different. Do take a peak though at our handprint lion!!!

This one really is easy – paint your hand red and… print!

Red Ted’s ladybirds with clear instructions of “Yes, Mummy I can count the legs myself!”. The children fingerpainted spots and the head. And used a black pen for the legs and line across the back.

    lovely, so cute : ) but then I’m quite partial to the odd creepy crawly or two!

    How adorable! What a lovely idea! I’m sure my two little boys – aged 18 months and 3 and a half – would be up for this. Thank you Maggy! Filipa x

    These are all so much fun. I just discovered your blog from pinterest and having such a fun time doing the alphabet handprints. Getting the kids geared up for school again and this is such a fun little activity to finish off the summer with.
