Ladybug Paperweight Lesson and Craft 

A great gift idea to make for Moms and Dads

$3.00 is the suggested donation for use of this idea. 

Bible point: God created ladybugs for a very special purpose in creation: they eat aphids, which are plant destroying bugs. Since God made ladybugs for a special purpose, how much more has he planned a special purpose for you? This is what the Bible says in Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future." 

What you need: smooth, rounded stone, red acrylic paint, paint brush, black permanent marker, gloss spray paint. (You might want the children to find their own 'perfect-shaped stone' to paint.)

What you do: Using your paint brush, paint the stone red, allow to dry. Using your black permanent marker draw the head on one end and an upside down "V" down the center of the stone to mark off the wing sections. Now draw the dots on the ladybug's back. Spray paint with gloss finish. Print out the card, below, to got with it if you're making it Mother's Day.

If you like this "Buggie" craft, then you'll love the other Crafts, Games and Yummy Devotions from the book, Goin' Buggie For Jesus-I'm A BEE-liever.
