We had a bug-themed party this summer, so I'll share some of what we did.
We had cupcakes that I decorated with reddish Nilla Wafers and chocolate icing. (Green icing for the cupcake, chocolate for the spots and face.) Licorice sticks for the antenna.
I bought some canvas fabric and made some small tote bags. I had the kids use fabric paints to put red fingerprints on the bags, and I used black to add the details. (We did a "bug" theme, not just "ladybug" so we used yellow and red...bees and ladybugs.) I also used some cute bee ribbon for the handles on the totes, but you might be able to find some ladybug ribbon.
For the "goody bag," I used bug stickers, magnifying glasses, and other bug-related items. All the kids seemed to enjoy it...my 5 year old, a 4 year old, a 3 year old, a 2 year old, a 1 year old, and a baby. LOL. We had a yardful of girls that day!
