Ladybug Lapbook and Craft
I finished the Ladybug lapbook I have been putting together for Brodie. He really loves it as he does all the lapbooks I've made. Drew is slowly starting to get into them and is being a little less rough with them.I made up some of my own activities with this book. Brodie really likes it when the books have cards he can take out and lay on the table. It doesn't matter what they are numbers, colors, puzzles he doesn't care. So, I made this book with counting ladybug cards. I just printed the bugs off onto cardstock, colored them, cut them and glued them onto another piece of cardstock. I made 10 cards with ladybugs on them and 10 number cards to match. I found some other ideas here at Lapbook Lessons. They have all sorts of lapbooks and you can sign up for free. Here is another good site I got some stuff off of.
Here are some of the books we read. This is the craft we did today also.
*Black construction paper
*Black pipe cleaners
*Lg. hole punch makes it easier to punch large circles or just do it by hand
*Glue and scissors
Paint the back of the paper plate with red paint. Allow to dry. Punch circles out of black paper. Cut a large black circle for the head and glue onto plate. Glue the googly eyes on the head. Glue circles onto body. Stick black pipe cleaners into the side of the plate for legs.
