The kids used paint to make different colored fingerprints on the jar template. I think stamp ink would work well too, we just didn't have any. We let the paint dry for a few minutes, and then we used a black marker to add eyes, legs, wings, spots, stripes, and antenna to turn the fingerprints into cute buggy friends!!
My 6 yr. old did his own, but my 3 yr. old wanted some help, so I made hers into bugs for her.
You can download a free jar template that I made here!
Normally I hate bugs....but these cuties can stick around the house for awhile!
