Easy Ladybug Craft Ideas

Here are some fantastic inspirations on how to use our free ladybug craft templates. To make it easier for you, I will sort the ideas by the size of our craft templates and lesson ideas.

Small Ladybug Templates

Upfront I want to mention, that the smaller the ladybug templates are, the higher the difficulty level for smaller children. With this being said, let’s start with the smallest printables.

Use our small templates of ladybugs for storytime. Read your children or students a cute ladybug story and include your ladybug cutouts in your story.

In case you prefer to use these templates for crafting, here is a tip for our small printable ladybug templates: Do not worry about the ladybug legs, simply cut them out without them if needed.

This makes it much easier for children.

Medium Ladybug Templates

The bigger the templates get the easier it is to color and cut them. We love to use the medium-sized ladybug printables and turn them into a math game.

Each ladybug has 6 dots on its body. I cut the printout into pieces with one ladybug on each piece.

Then I write the number of dots in the corner of each paper and my children need to color the exact amount of dots black.

It is a fun way to recognize and learn numbers including counting. What a fun way to learn math!

Large Ladybug Templates

The large printouts on the other hand make nice ladybug coloring pages. You can easily combine them with teaching letters. L is for ladybug!

Simply add some letter L tracing sheets to our templates and use them to round up your alphabet lesson!

Ladybug Lifecycle

Another great way of including these blank ladybug templates is to add them to your lifecycle lesson about ladybugs.

Did you know the lifecycle of a ladybug has four stages in a process called metamorphosis? These stages include egg, larva, pupa, and adult.

Teach your children everything about it and include our ladybug cutouts.

Let your children color and decorate them nicely and use the back for your invitation or cute ladybug quotes for kids.
