Ladybug Party Supplies and Decorations

  • To make homemade Ladybug Invitations, create a small homemade Butterfly book inviting your little one’s friends to come to your party. Draw, color, and cut-out a butterfly shape (or use a ladybug picture) and use it as the cover. Use white or colored paper for the pages of your booklet and staple them together. Cut the booklet to the shape of the a ladybug creating your small booklet. Write a cute little story inviting the friends to a ladybug garden party and have your little one draw the pictures to go along with the story.

Ladybug Party Games and
Ladybug Birthday Party Activities

  • Butterfly, Butterfly, Ladybug! Play like duck, duck, goose
  • Pin the spot on the ladybug Like pin the tail on the donkey
  • Musical ladybug Pre-cut out large leaves out of felt material (for the chairs). The leaves can be randomly placed around the room when the ladybugs are flying around the room to music. Play the same way as musical chairs.
  • Garden Collage Have the guests create a collage. Get lots of different material with lots of different textures (e.g., different papers, cloth, etc.). Pre-cut different shapes to look like flowers, bugs, butterflies, trees/leaves. Also have available sequence, beads, etc. to add decorations to their masterpieces.
  • Thumb Ladybug Each person gets a framed canvas. On the canvas do a wash of color (watered down paint, for a faint color try oranges, pinks, purples, blues, etc.). Next take a thin paintbrush and dip it in brown paint, then make two or three brush strokes across the canvas to create branches. With another brush add a couple of leaves. Now you can use your thumb (help will be needed for painting fingertips). Paint your fingertips red and place them on the branches. When your ladybugs dry use a felt tip pen/marker to draw the spots and antenna on the ladybugs. ** A little hint when painting at a party is to have a hair drier handy to blow dry the different stages of painting. This way it speeds up the process and the painting will look better in the end.
  • Decorate Ladybug sugar cookies You can make ladybugs, watering cans or sunflower.
