Got some old bottle caps laying around? Don’t throw them out, Babysits and the Victoria Bug Zoo have a fun craft idea for you and your little one! These cute insect magnets are super quick and easy to make, all it takes is 3 simple steps. You can make whatever insects you like, we decided to make a Ladybird beetle, a Honeybee, a Blue milkweed beetle, and a Striped cucumber beetle. Take a look at our magnets in the picture above for some inspiration and follow the instructions below to create your own little insect magnets!


  • Bottle caps
  • Paint 
  • Magnets
  • Glue

Step 1: Start collecting bottle caps if you haven’t already and give them a quick rinse.

Step 2: Time to paint your favorite insects! 

Step 3: Once the paint has dried, glue a small magnet to the back. 

It’s as easy as that! Time to decorate your fridge with these fun little critters!
