Happy SPRING!!!! The girls were so excited to see some bugs at the playground this afternoon — a sign of warmer weather! Here are some of our favorite crafts to celebrate….. bugs!


1. Creepy Crawly Seek n Find — Recycle a clear plastic container to make your own Seek n Find toy.


2. Giant Butterflies — Make giant butterflies… that really fly!


3. Light-Up Fireflies — Simple, and fun!


4. Ladybug Cuteness — Turn color coding labels into adorable ladybugs.


5. Love Bugs — Spread some love around the house, then go on a love bug scavenger hunt!


6. Blinky Bugs — Emily really loved making these blinky bugs with a bit of help from her dad. One of them sits on top of our¬†refrigerator, and blinks whenever someone opens or closes the door to the fridge!


7. Tissue Paper Butterflies — I love how something as simple as tissue paper and pipe cleaners can make kids so happy!

  1. the tissue paper and pipe cleaner butterflies would make pretty awesome bedroom decor, I think- And your hubby must be an engineer. The early warning bug light-up system that someone is swiping the last piece of chocolate cake is brilliant. :)

  2. We have those tissue paper/pipe cleaner butterflies still up from two years ago. Such an easy project that delights them so much!

  3. Great ideas! My kids LOVE bugs. I especially love the fireflies and ladybugs – so clever!

    • LOL — I think both of mine inherited our bug-loving genes. I remember spending loooooong stretches of time just looking at bugs when I was a kid. They are amazing!

  4. Ha ha ha ha, so I misread blinki bugs, and saw bikini bugs…… Oops
