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!

    Thanks for featuring our life cycle. I just love all these ladybug ideas!!

  • I love these! I’d make the ladybug lunch for my son, but I tried a butterfly once and he refused to eat it “because if I eat the butterfly’s wings, she can’t fly!”…no more cute food for him!

    Here are pics of our recent ladybug life cycle adventure:
