You will need two 9 x 12 sheets of construction paper (color is your choice), sharpies, glue sticks, and scissors.
STEP ONE: I modeled writing a "ug" word, putting a circle around it and adding bug details. We drew six "ug" bugs together as a class (bug, tug, mug, rug, hug, slug).
STEP TWO: Each child cuts out their bugs. I told them not to worry about cutting close to the outline.
STEP THREE: To make the rug, fold the 9 x 12 paper in half (portrait direction). Color and decorate. Glue the two sides closed, leaving the top open.
(The opening is where you will put your "bugs.")
STEP FOUR: Cut fringe on either side of the pocket where it is glued shut.
STEP FIVE: It is ready for your bugs! Yikes! Bugs are in your rug!
