Draw your simple ladybug shape on the red construction paper

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
