🌈 Ladybird Ladybird….🐞🐞

Some of you might remember when we found a black and red ladybird in the nursery garden. Well one of them landed on me when I was in my garden

He was quite wriggly but I had a good look. He was just like the harlequin ladybird that we saw at nursery

When I went out to find some more ladybirds I couldn’t find any but I did find some ladybird babies. They are called larvae and they look like this.

When you go outside today have a look along walls and you might see some ladybird larvae too.

I also saw this ladybird pupae. It was attached to the wall

I’m going to have a go at making my own spotty ladybird using foam but you could use card or paper. You could use paper or toilet roll holder.

Gather your resources
Cut out a black body and two red wings
Now cut out your spots. Make sure you put the same number of spots on each wing
Did you find the googly eyes? Now is a good time to use them!

Here’s a link to what the ladybird heard by Julia Donaldson. You could use your ladybird as a prop when you are listening to the story


This is the song sung by Julia Donaldson and her husband. I hope you enjoy it 🐞🐞
