DIY Daisy's Ladybug Rocks

Nature offers all sorts of wonderful materials to use when you want to make crafts. If you look around on a nature walk you will see lots of plants, animals, shapes and textures to inspire you. This is what happened to Daisy when she was out in her garden. A lady bug inspired her to use a pebble she found to make a LADYBUG ROCK.

In Canada you can watch Daisy & the Gumboot Kids on the CBC TV App or at Gumboot Kids from around the world click here to listen to Jessie Farrell's songs.  

1, 2, 3 spots on a ladybug
1, 2, 3 spots on a ladybug
It’s always lucky to spot you on a leaf...
the colour of your wings so vibrant and pretty!
I’m trying now to count your spots before you fly away home...
1, 2, 3 spots on a ladybug.

Make a Ladybug Rock with Daisy!

(click here for the full printable from CBC Kids) 

Step 1

Head outside and find a smooth, round rock.

Step 2

Use some white acrylic paint and paint your entire rock white. This is called a base coat — it will make the colours look brighter when you paint your ladybug. Take a break while you wait for your white paint to dry.

Step 3

Choose a bright colour and paint your ladybug. Be patient while the paint dries then add some polka dots and eyes. Voilà!

Remember there is no right or wrong way to make a nature craft, so have fun!



The Gumboot Kids would love to see what you have made!
