Kids will really enjoy making their own unique craft version of this Litter Bug.  These bugs are made of bits and pieces of litter that you will find around your craft room and in the trash.


Trash (Newspaper, String, Straws, Bottle Tops, Caps)
Tacky Glue or Low Temp Glue Gun


Crumple up a piece of newspaper. Wrap another piece around it.Wrap with string and tie off to hold newspaper in a ball.

Add straws, bottle tops, caps... anything to make it look like a litter bug. Use our picture as a reference, but use your imagination to make your own unique "bug".
