This project is so much fun. We’re making lady-bug buds on a bush. That’s kind of a tongue twister, but you get the idea. Although I used a variety of colors for the lady bugs in my sample, I think using just one color for all the lady bugs would make an outstanding piece. The body of the lady bug is a thumb or fingerprint. Make the head with a Q-tip, and the spots and eyes with a toothpick. You’ll find all the directions for Thumbprint Lady Buds in the 4th Grade Projects Gallery in the sidebar.
Happy New Year, and congratulations! I wanted to let you know that you made it onto our list of The Top 100 Kids' Craft Ideas of 2014.
