Next year we will paint 1 red plate and 1 black plate, rather than 2 circles out of paper - this is a much better idea. Think we only got 3 plates out of 80 made this year. Why didn't I think of this. Must add 1000s of paper plates to art-budget for school.
Eric Carle Inspired Ladybugs: Finger paint the background creating a horizon line. Have each wing be a primary color, and then the body of the ladybug be the secondary color--use tissue paper for all parts of the bug. When assemble use a brad so the wings move.
