These are the bug crafts we did to go along with our Welcome Spring What’s in the Garden Preschool Bundle.
The bug crafts can be done ahead of time. Discuss each bug and their various parts and functions as you come across them in the worksheets.
Or the crafts can be done after each bug is discussed!
And now unto the bugs and simple instructions for creating them.
To make the bee: Use black and yellow construction paper. Cut out the shapes of the different parts of a bee. Glue the parts together. Then add on craft eyes and fuzzy sticks for mouth and antennae.
To make the butterfly: Use wooden craft sticks and popsicle sticks to create the wings & body. Add on craft eyes and fuzzy sticks for antennae. Decorate with crayons and glitter, if desired.
To make the dragonflies: Glue 3 popsicle sticks together (as shown above). Add craft eyes and fuzzy sticks for the antennae.
To make the dragonflies: Color a clothespin using a green crayon. Glue on craft eyes and use fuzzy stick for the legs.
To make a ladybug: Use red/pink and black paper plates (I had the kids color them with acrylic paint). Allow them to dry if painted. Using a black sheet of construction paper, cut out the face, feet, antennae, spots, etc. Glue them unto the paper plate. Add on eyes and a mouth if desired (I used glitter glue for the mouth).
To make a spider: Cut out a section of an egg cartoon. Paint it with acrylic paint if desired. Allow to dry. Add eyes and fuzzy sticks for the legs. Bend the sticks to make the look sort of like spider’s legs.
To make the worms: Lay a popsicle stick on a flat surface. Paste it with glue. Attach pom poms unto the stick. Add craft eyes. All done!
