This activity is wonderful for following directions, line imitation, far point copy, visual-perceptual and visual-motor skills. It also works on asymmetrical bilateral UE coordination (cutting skills), paper orientation, and every bug looks wonderful.
1. 3 colored sheets of paper (blue, light green, darker green)
2. 1 sheet of white paper to draw bug on
3. pencil and crayons
4. glue stick
Directions: Draw 1 line at a time and ask kids to watch, imitate in space, then draw what you did.
1. Start with a “U” shape (head).
2. Then draw circles (eyes).
3. Next draw a horizontal line (belly).
4. Then draw an arched line back to the head/eyeball area.
5. Draw legs and feet.
6. Add face and spots.
For the grass, have kids turn their green sheets of paper so that they are tall (like a very high hamburger sandwich) and cut upwards (away from their body).
Glue grass strips on to the blue paper.
Color and cut out your bug and then glue it on the grass.
Enjoy this skill building fun!
