Ladybug Activities for Kids

Welcome to Tuesday Tots! This week I’m featuring lots of ladybug activities for kids from the Tuesday Tots linky and from our archives. I grew up calling these insects ladybugs, but have also learned people call them ladybird beetles and lady beetles as these aren’t truly bugs. Whatever you choose to call these 6-legged cuties, the included activities cover math, art, crafts, science, and fun food for hours of play and learning. You could do a whole unit on ladybirds! Perfect for spring!
