Lady bug cupcakes:
1 strawberry cupcake for each child
push 2 maraschino cherries into each cupcake with stems sticking out (antennae)
frost with red icing (you can use pink icing and add red food coloring)
add mini chocolate chips for dots
add green mini m&m’s for eyes
draw smile on with black decorating icing
Soooo cute and the kids will love it!
After reading The Grouchy Ladybug, my co-teacher made ladybugs out apples. You give each child a half of an apple. Spread peanut butter on the red part. Put chocolate chips on for spots and pretzels for antennas. Our kids loved it.
