How to make a Ladybug Valentine’s Day card with Kids!
These cards are super duper easy and fun to make! You can watch the easy instructional how to video on “auto play” or follow the step by step instructions!
Step by Step Instructions
Begin with the Ladybug Outline
Draw a straight line across your folded piece of red card. The line should be around 1/3 from the top.
Draw a curver to shape the ladybugs head.
Using black markers, colour in this section (you can cut out pieces of black paper if you prefer too.
Now going from the centre of the ladybug’s head, draw a straight line down the centre of the card.
Now draw two little curves to round off the ladybug’s body.
Add the Valentine’s Heart Details to your ladybug card
Time to have some fun with heart shapes!
Draw as many black hearts onto the ladybug’s body as you wish. You can of course cut these out and glue them on too. And you can also have fun with different colours (as we did for our lovebug corner bookmarks here).
Cut out two white circles for the ladybug’s eyes.
Draw on some hearts as pupils (this is a great alternative to the less environmentally friendly googly eyes!).
Glue in place.
Shape the Ladybug Card
Now shape the ladybug card, by cutting out the curves around the ladybug’s head and the bottom of the card! Ta-daaaaa….
Your super cute ladybug card is finished and can join the rest of the Super Simple Valentine’s Day Card designs! And wish someone a very Happy Valentine’s Day!
These ladybug cards are suitable for class room crafting, whether working in elementary school or with younger kids. These are particularl fun cards to make with toddlers or preschoolers at home. Especially if you get the children to stick the hearts on.
