Isn't this the cutest little, red ladybug you have ever seen? I made this mini color resource for my toddler who is just getting into teacher time with Mommy. Having 7 years of experience in the classroom, this resource has so many craft options to ensure you feel comfortable making these crafts with your students. However, if you home school this is a great craft to do with your children, mine loved this so much!
Little Red Ladybug Craft:
-Has two head options: a photo head, which turns each child into a ladybug or a simple ladybug head.
- There are also mounting boarder pages in color or black and white for attaching your finished craft to. I even added a personalized page so each student/child can add their name.
- The body of the ladybug comes in color or black and white. There is also an additional option for adding numbers 1-10 to the ladybug dots. This also comes in color or black and white.
- I have also included legs and antennae but you could easily sub those for pipe cleaners or strips of construction paper if you wanted a different option.
Apple Slice Ladybugs:
-This is an easy stamping activity using apples as the body of the ladybug. Here is the supplies I have listed for making this craft. 1. apple; cut in half 2. Paint: red and black 3. paper template 4. Q-tips 5. paper plate 6. dowel rod (or something similar for making spots)
- I have provided a template for the ladybugs to be stamped onto in color or black and white. But you could easily use other paper you have.
Ladybug Counting 1-10:
- I have made an easy counting activity with 10 ladybugs on a printable. I included a sheet with already made dots representing number 1-10. This is great for hanging in the classroom, practicing counting using one to one correspondence or asking to find the number "__". I have also included a blank ladybug where students have to add in the correct amount of dots to each ladybug. Color or black and white options are provided.
- Last I have given you 2 large ladybugs for any creative options you would like. I laminated them and let my daughter use a dry erase marker to add dots and practice counting. You could easily laminate enough for your class and use these in a fun interactive review lesson, have groups of students represent different numbers and add their handmade number posters around the room. They are for whatever you can create! ;)
**** I have recently updated this resource to include two new resources and many IRL photos!
1. I have added in an "I Spy" the color red activity. There is a little spy glass necklace you can make in addition to 4 different clipboards full of items to spy.
-Blank List for sketching what you spy.
2. The next new resource that has been added is an apple or strawberry picking activity. There are templates for numbers 0-10. This activity helps with one-to-one correspondence and number identification.
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at one of my resources. Please let me know if you have any questions and happy teaching!
