 Apple-Raisin Ladybug
"Children seem to be fascinated by bugs. So during a spring visit, my great-nieces and I had fun making fresh fruit salads that looked like garden insects," says Sherry Masters, Cincinnati, Ohio. Mandy Paige-Wrischnik assembled this lovely ladybug while her sister made a cute caterpillar.
