How to make a ladybug mobile

Equipment required:
  • ladybugs - choose color or blackline
  • scissors
  • glue
  • string
  • tape
  • colored pencils (if using the blackline version)

Steps to make a ladybug mobile

  • choose how many bugs you want on a single string and print enough ladybugs
  • you will need one printed page per ladybug

  • color the ladybugs (if using blackline version)

  • cut the circles out - 3 make one twirling ladybug 

  • fold each circle bug in half 

  • cut a length of string (determined by how long you want them hanging from the ceiling)
  • tape a string in the center of one circle bug along the fold line 

  • put glue along one half of the bug with string 

  • place half of a 2nd bug on this glued section  

  • glue over the 2 halves that are now exposed (one will be from the 1st bug, the other from the 2nd bug) 

  • place the 3rd bug over these 2 glued halves and press down to secure 

  • lift up from the string and give shape to the bug 

  • if you would like more than one bug on each mobile, simply use a long piece of string and repeat the over procedure further down along the string

We hope these cute ladybugs brighten your learning space and bring joy to your day!
