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.
There’s not much that you need to pull off a similar hallway of your own. Of course, Astrobrights papers are a must!!! If I’m needing a punch of color, I wouldn’t look any further.
I used my favorite Astrobright colors for the bugs and the banner.
I didn’t really have a template for these bugs, I simply drew some large shapes, then used more shapes to create the antenna and eyes. 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.
