your local library for books on ladybugs. These look great
as table centerpieces or just propped up around your party
for easy but creative party decorations.
graham crackers make fun 'dirt' for cake decorating.
smaller guests, make ladybug wings from red construction paper.
Either put the black dots on yourself ahead of time, or allow
the children to glue/marker them on themselves. These can
then be safety-pinned to the children's backs - now you'll
have a swarm of ladybugs at your party!
an activity, give each guest a small pot and allow them to
pot their own flower. Potable flowers can be purchased VERY
inexpensively at your local garden store. These make GREAT
parting gifts for your guests as well.
giant leaves from large sheets of green construction paper.
These make great table placemats!
the entrance to your party, place a vase of fresh flowers
(artificial ones might work better for the very young.) Allow
each guest to take one flower to have throughout the party.
If you have different kinds, it's a great way to divide the
children up into teams for your games and activities (i.e.
all of the daisies are one time, etc.)
