Ladybug Bookmark Craft

For some people rainbows, flowers blooming and bunnies are the signal springtime is around the corner but I always look for ladybugs to show up to fully feel the Spring-season vibes.
Let’s be honest, not only are ladybugs super cute and charming but they’re also known to be good luck in almost every culture; there’s no way to argue with that!

So, I’ve come up with these adorable ladybug bookmarks. Because there’s no such thing as too much good luck! 

Easy to do and guaranteed to look super cute, these bookmarks can really be amazing when your preschoolers are starting to learn how to read. The ladybug bookmark can be used to point the words as your kids are reading wonderful stories and turn the learning process into a fun game.

The little hearts make it an amazing craft for a Valentine’s Day craft project as well. You’ll only need a few very inexpensive supplies (a must in my book!), print and cut out the free template pieces, and you’re all set to start making ladybugs bookmarks in no time!
