Number Crafts {Number SEVEN}... Lovely Love Bug

I teach a weekly class for preschoolers called "123 Learn with Me".  Each week, we learn about numbers through a variety of activities and crafts. This week, we had some fun learning about the number seven.

During our class, we did a number seven search, practiced printing the number seven, decorated a number seven, made a love bug with seven spots, and crafted a number seven headband.  You can download the full lesson plan {for free} here.

The highlight of our class was the "Love Bug" with SEVEN spots. To make your own love bug:

1) Print the template that you can find here.
2) Color the love bug.
3) Use glue to attach 7 heart-shaped spots to the wings.
4) Use glue to attach a circle-shaped head and a picture of the child.
5) Draw antennae, and attach two buttons with glue.

Cute, right?  We also made a simple number 7 headband out of card stock.  The headband is made of two inch strips of card stock taped together.  The number 7 is a circle of card stock with tissue paper squares "scrunched up" and attached with glue.

I think all of these number seven crafts and activities are adorable... but the love bug is definitely my favorite.  I am a sucker for kid crafts with pictures and/or handprints.

You could also make a simple "counting tree". It's a great way to practice cutting, gluing, and fine motor skills (placing the stickers on). It would be fun for Christmas... but wonderful all year around!

Isn't this a cute way to learn about the number seven? I'll be sharing our crafts and activities for the number eight soon, so don't forget to come back and check them out.
