Spring has finally sprung in Northern Michigan and to welcome it and bring some color to my hallway, I had my students create these bright, fun, and shapely bugs. While it was super simple, it also was a great way to reinforce shapes, practice scissor skills, and discuss symmetry. If you like this look, you can get the Free Printable Spring Banner to tie it all together.
There’s not much that you need to pull off a similar hallway of your own. Of course, Astrobrights papers are a must!!! Astrobrights always has what I need when I’m looking for COLOR.
My motto when it comes to Astorbrights papers is always, ‘the brighter, the better.’
There really isn’t a template for these bugs. I simply drew some large shapes, then used more shapes to create the antenna and eyes. Then, I threw together a simple template for the legs, used some leftover black hearts from a heart punching activity earlier in the year, and . . . ‘ bing, bang, bug’ . . . we had our bug collection.
