Tissue Paper Ladybug Kids Craft (with free pattern printable)

My preschooler is a big fan of using tissue paper in crafts. So am I! We really enjoyed the fun textures the tissue paper created in our Tissue Paper Bee Craft so I decided to create another insect pattern and we made this super adorable Tissue Paper Ladybug Craft. I’ve included our pattern as a free printable to make this craft even more simple and fun!
