Hi there! I’m Kristina from ToddlerApproved.com and right now at my house bugs are an obsession for my kids! That’s why we were very excited to try out Allie’s Cork Bug Creations from Camp Sunny Patch’s Session 4 . . . with a twist! You can download the printable instructions here for the original version.
While the corks dried, we made some faux paste paper using paint, Melissa & Doug multi-colored construction paper, our jumbo paintbrushes, and various tools from around the house. My son decided that we should use the paste paper for our bug creations . . . so we cut it up to use as wings, feet, antennae, etc. and then we also used it to cover some of the cardboard tubes we had in our recycling bin.
