Ladybug Bug Box
Hey friends! It’s $10 on the 10th. This months theme is Ladybugs. Not gonna lie, I had to pull out the extra creative juices on this one, but I’m pretty happy with what I ended up with. Spring means planting season here in Texas. Which means that we are outside a lot more. When my boys were little I always tried to find a fun outdoor activity to keep them busy while I gardened. Since our theme is Ladybugs, it only stands to reason that I would think of a Ladybug bug box!
I picked up this colorful bug box at my local Dollar Tree.
It is so fun and colorful, however it was a little plain.
It needed a little something extra.
Plus, if you have more than one little it’s always good to do something that lets each child know who’s bug box is who’s.
Nobody needs a squabble going on while work is getting done!
To make my bug box extra special, I cut out this vinyl ladybug on my Silhouette.
If you don’t have a cutting machine there are a ton of vinyl stickers available at craft stores.
Apply the vinyl transfer to the bug box.
Add extra embellishments.
I added a few “dashes” to show the ladybug’s flight.
On the back side I added the child’s name.
My Ladybug box is done!
I found this magnifying glass at Hobby Lobby and couldn’t resist adding it to the box.
Super easy and guaranteed to keep littles busy!

This is a cute idea. The magnifying glass was a nice touch to the kit. I bet any child would love to catch any type of insects with this.
I loved that little magnifying glass too. Just stumbled across it, but guess it was meant to be!
Tammy, I love how simple your ladybug box was to decorate! Really fun project to do with the kids or to let them do themselves, too, when they are a little older. I am sure these boxes will keep your kids busy for a long time while you are out working your garden magic!! <3 Happy to be with you all on this month's ladybug tour.
Thanks Barb, always love hopping with you on $10 on the 10th! You are so right, they would be great for the ones a little older to decorate themselves. Another project to keep them busy and have fun at the same time!
What child wouldn’t love this?
This too cute and the magnifying glass is perfect. Little ones would be so excited.
They absolutely were excited. Not sure how Mom felt about taking the box home with a few little critters in it! lol But they did love the box.
I love how you personalized the bug box, Tammy. The perfect gift for the start of Summer!
Thanks Ann! I love keeping the littles busy.
What a perfect idea to personalize the ladybug container….It’s super duper cute!! It’s the ideal birthday gift for kids, too. Pinned.
You are so right! It would be a great birthday gift. I need to keep that idea on file for sure.
