Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut hot dogs in half. Roll each half in a raw crescent roll (the canned refrigerator kind) with the round part of the hot dog sticking out. Bake for about 12 minutes. Add pretzel sticks or uncooked spaghetti noodles with raisins on top for antennae.
Measure out two circle shapes, one red and one black. Cut the red circle in half, and use a hole punch to put holes in both sides. Glue the red pieces to the black circle so that the black circle shows through the punched holes. Finally, glue on wiggly eyes and allow to dry.

Become a grouchy ladybug
This was quick and easy one to make. We took a photo with a "grouchy" face, and created a lady bug body. The kids had a great time checking out each others "grouchy" faces, and we all got a good laugh seeing them compiled.

make your own caterpillar
Supplies Needed; 1/2 Egg Carton, red and green paint, wiggly eyes, purple pipe cleaner, glue and a black marker.
Paint 5 of the egg carton cups green and the final one red. Allow to dry. Cut a 4-6" section of purple pipe cleaner and puncture it through the top of the red cup, to create antennae. Glue on your wiggly eyes, and use your black pen to draw on the caterpillar's nose.
Directions: Trace hands onto construction paper and cut out (need 4 hands). Glue hands palm down near the bottom of the white paper. Dip finger into red paint and press onto grass area. Create a sun with yellow paint. Once the paint has dried add legs and dots to ladybugs with marker.
