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.
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 🐞🐞
