Top 7 Bug Crafts for Preschoolers

As much as we love Bug Crafts we really do have a problem with the real life creepy crawlies like Cockroaches! I recently stumbled into the kitchen half-asleep in search of a drink of water…only to discover a family of cockroaches scurrying all over my clean kitchen sink!! Eeeeek!! I managed to wake the whole house with my shriek (and maybe also the next door neighbour’s dog!!). I then proceeded to empty half a can of no-brand bug spray…without much effect! We were ‘lucky’ terrified to be given the opportunity to test the new Mortein Crawling Insect Killer – Rapid Kill!

You will need a few basic supplies to form the base of these bugs, but when you get to the decorating part you can use whatever you fancy (or whatever you happen to have in the cupboard). For your TP Roll Love Bugs, you will need: Optional extras: – Pom poms – Glitter or glitter glue pens – stickers – Washi tape. Plastic Spoon Craft: Bugs on a Branch.

Coffee Filter Butterfly Craft

Such a simple, classic nature craft which looks gorgeous hanging in the window or as a mobile for a baby. Miss 5 declared that she wanted “to make some butterfly art” the other day, so I remembered this classic craft which we haven’t tried yet an set it up as an after school art activity for us all to do together. I love the simplicity of these and that they require so few materials and create very little mess (always an extra bonus when getting creative at the end of the day!)

To make this coffee filter butterfly craft you need: clothes pegs/ pins (either plain or painted like the ones we made below) solid or liquid watercolour paints coffee filters We got our coffee filters from a friend who brought them back from the USA, but you can get similar smaller ones here in the UK. They each did a couple and I made some too as it was very relaxing and therapeutic!
