Spring is here and it’s the perfect time for ladybugs, so we decided to start the season off with some great hands on learning. This easy ladybug life cycle sensory play and fun coloring pages make for the start of a wonderful ladybug unit study. Are you ready to check out our preschool ladybug week?

 These ladybug life cycle figures are so great. In fact we have almost every set the kids enjoy them so much. Here is a look at how we learned the life cycle of the chicken. Each life cycle is so unique and special. Since Bells is on the younger side I knew these wonderful coloring pages would be perfect.

We added in a few wonderful ladybug books. Ladybugs,  Are You a Ladybug and A Ladybugs Life.

Painting our soon to be ladybug rocks.

All you need is a few clean rocks and red paint. Allow the children to paint the rocks (ours needed about 2/3 coats) to use for your ladybugs. When they dry you can add the black dots or have them add the black dots (we used a marker), you could definitely use paint if you wanted to. Glue on the eyes and you have your ladybugs 🙂

We are BIG into Sensory play here, so when I thought of ways to explore the ladybug life cycle I knew I wanted to include a sensory experience. This was the best! All you need is a large bag of frozen corn (those are your eggs), the ladybug life cycle set, leaves and painted rocks are optional. Viola!

Exciting and Educational Sensory Fun!

We learned that ladybugs go through several stages of growth (just like they do). We also learned that ladybugs love to eat a lot of aphids (tiny green insects).  So many exciting facts about ladybugs to learn.

We love Ladybugs!!
