Got a bug lover in your life? Well then today’s bug themed summer crafts for kids will be perfect! Hi! It’s Leslie from Pink Stripey Socks.

One of my preschooler’s good friends is having a bug themed birthday party. Instead of purchasing a birthday card, I figured it would be super easy to make our very own cute buggy birthday cards.

So I came up with three designs. Which do you like the best?

Materials:

  • Blank Cards
  • Permanent Marker
  • Circle Stickers
  • Ink pads
  • Dot Markers
  • Scissors
  • Optional: Masking Tape

Optional: If you want a border around your card, place masking tape around the front of your card. (If your masking tape is too strong and rips your paper, simply stick it to your clothing first before placing it on the paper card. This will make the tape less sticky.)
