Ages 2-4: Huggable-Bugs Party
Bug Crazy Invitation
Bug and Butterfly Magnets: These magnets are a charming, easy-to-make craft. Have children glue pom-poms or decorative papers (precut in the shape of butterfly wings) onto craft sticks. Add googly eyes. Then place stick-on magnet strips on the bottom of the sticks.
Little-Critter Cupcakes Cupcakes
Cupcakes are kid pleasers, and these brightly decorated ones feature such friendly-looking ladybugs, bees, and butterflies that children will wish they could come alive.*
Lucky-Bugs Goody Bag
Mini canvas totes, available at craft stores, make great goody bags. To decorate, use fabric paints. Pack the totes with magnifying glasses, bug and butterfly stickers, plastic bugs, and lollipops, which you can decorate in a buglike fashion by adding chenille stems and beads.
