The Grouchy Ladybug Activities, Lessons, and Crafts

Preschool and kindergarten "The Grouchy Ladybug" activities, crafts, and lessons

It's never too early to support your child's social and emotional growth. The book "The Grouchy Ladybug" from Eric Carle is a great starting point to talk about bullies and feelings. The children will learn how to recognize their feelings, compare sizes, learn to tell time, learn about the ladybug's life cycle and create a ladybug life cycle book, and move and play with ladybugs. In our KidsSoup Resource Library you will find more than 50 ladybug activities, science lessons, games, and craft ideas for preschool and kindergarten.

Ladybug or other Bugs Rocks 

What you need: 

Paint in red, black, yellow, and gray 

Paintbrushes 

A collection of smooth, round rocks 

Googly eyes 

Glue

 

rock bugs

What you do: 

Let each child pick a rock to paint with a bug pattern. Have children paint one curved end of their rocks black to make the heads of their bugs. Then, have them paint the rest of their rocks to match a bug body pattern. Good choices are ladybugs (red with black spots), bees (black and yellow stripes), and roly-polys (segments of gray separated with black lines).

Once the paint has dried, let children glue googly eyes to the "head" parts of their rocks to finish their bugs.
