We love using bottle tops for crafts! Check out the super cute bottle top ladybugs, spiders, and bumble bees that we made!
The idea was inspired by the bottle top spiders that we made awhile back and the ladybug and bumblebee modern art project we did along with the book, Ladybug Girl and Bumblebee Boy.
The bottle top bugs were all super simple to make.
Ladybugs & Bumblebees: For the ladybugs and bumble bees, we used black acrylic paint, red and yellow bottle tops, and googly eyes. The kids used eraser heads to put spots on the ladybugs (much like our eraser dot rainbow craft) and they painted lines for the stripes on the bees.
Spiders: For the spiders we used black and brown bottle tops and black and brown pipe cleaners. For instructions on the spiders, see the spider bottle top tutorial.
For all of the bugs, I used the glue gun to adhere the eyes so that the wait time was minimal! 🙂 The kids had so much fun with their bugs. They gathered dirt and made a road for their new buggy friends…
I’m loving all of the imaginative play! What are some fun, inexpensive crafts you have made that have inspired imaginative play?
