Trivia:

Ladybugs love to eat scale insects, whiteflies, mites, and aphids. As larvae, they eat pests by the hundreds. A hungry adult ladybug can devour 50 aphids per day, and scientists estimate that the insect consumes as many as 5,000 aphids over its lifetime.

Supplies
  • Waxed Paper
  • White Card Stock or Heavy Paper
  • Bits of leftover red crayons
  • Warm iron in the hands of an adult
  • Scissors
  • Fishing wire
Instructions
  1. Print the ladybug pattern on the white card stock or heavy paper.  Use sharp scissors or an Xacto knife to cut out the inside areas first. Then cut around the outside of the ladybug to create the frame for your suncatcher. Make 2 if you want your suncatcher to look good from both sides
  2. Place a piece of wax paper a little larger than the area for the ladybug’s body. Sprinkle crayon shavings (sparingly!) on wax paper.
  3. Place another piece of wax paper on top of shavings and a blank sheet of paper or a cloth over that. Gently press down with a warm iron. Crayon will melt quickly.
  4. Glue finished wax paper between the two black ladybug outlines and let dry
  5. String up in the window with a piece of fishing line.
