Ladybug Strawberry

These cute girls in my neighborhood made some little books for my kids. One of them was a book about ladybugs, and included in it was some instructions on how t o make this strawberry ladybug treat!

  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Toothpicks
  • String licorice
  1. Wash strawberries and blueberries
  2. Remove stem and leaves from strawberries
  3. Push a toothpick into the top of the strawberry, leaving about half an inch sticking out.
  4. Press a blueberry onto the toothpick. This is the head.
  5. Push the pointed ends of the chocolate chips into the strawberry for spots.
  6. Push six small pieces of licorice into the strawberry for legs.
Now you have some yummy treats to talk about insects!
