The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.
Paint the tuna can black and set it aside and allow it to dry.
Trace around the tuna can to make a circle on a red piece of felt. Cut out your circle, but cut it about 1/4-inch larger than your tracing. Cut the circle in half. Cut tiny circles out of black felt and glue them on your red half circles to be the ladybug's spots.
Spread glue half way around the top edge of your painted tuna can (figure 1). place your two half circles onto the top edge of your can. The half circles should come together to form a circle, and you want them to join in the center of your glue line (figure 2). Once dry, you can fold back the bottom of the wings to reveal the inside of the can (figure 3)!
Use chenille stems to make antennae and small legs if you like. Glue on the wiggle eyes are your lady bug treasure holder is complete!
