If your kids like bugs...ladybugs that is, this is a simple outfit to make at home. It's easy, it's cheap, it's fun!
Get some black circles cut from construction paper or foam sheets, red shirt and black pants.
I always buy the wings. I tried to make them out of a hanger one year and almost scarred my face, so I will never do that again. It hurt and made a nasty gash across my check...I would rather not have that happen again...so if you want to try and make your own wings...please, be careful.
The outfit itself is really simple...a red sweatsuit will do, a red shirt and pants will do...put the clothes on along with your store bought wings. Glue the cut out circles around the back of the clothing so it resembles a ladybug's back.
You can make antennae out of a plastic headband, some pipe cleaners and pom-poms. Add some sparkles and glitter to your clothing and you've got that pretty red spotted insect, the Ladybug in costume form!
