DIY Ladybug box with a surprise from a box of matches

I surprised the children with non-traditional spring-summer production. They decorated the matchbox like a cute ladybug. Filka glued a simpler variant, Martínek a more complicated one. In the article you will find inspiration on how to do it.

Suitable for: 2,5+ years old

Bonding is suitable for children from two, two and a half years. Filka made a simpler model of a ladybug at the age of two and a half, and Martínek glued a more complex ladybug at the age of four. They both liked the result.

What we created

Bonding was relatively easy and time-saving. We made ladybugs from matchboxes. We hid small candies, small cars from Kinder eggs in the box, they can hold stickers, magnets or rings for girls. Making a decorative box is not only great fun for children, but also a nice packaging for a small gift. If you have cottage matches at home, you can use a larger box in which you can hide larger items.

How to do it

I cut out a wide strip of red paper. I cut out fourteen dots and two headers from the black paper. This was enough for a simpler form of ladybug. I cut out four red wings for a more complex ladybug. We glued the ladybugs on both sides.

The children stuck red paper around the box. I cut the leftovers. In addition, Martínek attached the wings. Then the children glued the head, the eye to it and finally the dots. The boys were excited about the result.

I wish you a lot of fun. 🙂
