What You’ll Need

What to Do

Begin by printing off the first sheet in the ladybug printable pack.

Next, cut out the ladybug (or have your child, depending on their ability) and either cut out the ladybug spots or punch them out.

Kids typically love doing both so ask them what they’d prefer.

Remember, it doesn’t have to be perfect – that’s what makes it so special.

Encourage your child to complete the work on this project – teach them how to safely use scissors and encourage them (if they are old enough) to cut out the pieces for this activity; doing so will increase their self-confidence.

Then, glue the spots on the ladybug. You could also paste buttons, pom poms, or sequins on the ladybug.
