Ideas for spring crafts: bees vs. ladybugs

Which child doesn’t love to do handicrafts? Spring offers many possibilities here. For example from the ins

You need this:

  • Nine stones of roughly the same size
  • Acrylic paint
  • Googly eyes
  • brush

Manual:

First prime your stones with yellow or red paint and let them dry well. Then draw a semicircle on one side of the stone – this will be the face. You can now paint the stripes on the bees, the wings and the dots on the ladybirds. If the face is dry, you can paint the eyes with white paint on the stone and then paint the pupil again with black paint. It gets even funnier when you glue googly eyes on the stones.

You can now simply use the stones as decoration. But if you draw a 3 × 3 grid with street chalk, you have a homemade tic-tac-toe game. Alternately you either place the animals on the grid. Whoever has three in a row first wins. If going outside is not an option, you can use washi tape, for example, to stick the grid to the floor.

Tip: Of course, you don’t have to paint the stones in exactly the same way. If your child is in the mood for rainbows and owls, this is of course also allowed.3/10
