You know the little plastic containers you end up with from those toy vending machines at the front of stores?

Something To Put Inside – candy, coins, etc.
How To Make It
Cut strips of construction paper to be used for the legs. Tape them to the lid of the container and fold them in a “leg” sort of way.
Bend chenille stem into a V shape then curl the ends to make it look like antennae. It’s best to tape into place since the glue will take too long to dry.
Glue on the googly eyes and a pom-pom for a nose. Let it dry and you have yourself a candy bug!
You can make these as party favors for all your preschooler’s guests. Change up the design for different holidays – the creepy spider for Halloween, add pink hearts for a Valentine Love Bug or change it into an ornament for your Christmas tree.
