Ladybug Love

This week for home school class we explored lady bugs. We have been visiting a lovely nature spot and the girls have noticed lots of lady bugs around the area, so we thought we’d do a little more in depth study on the local lady beetles. We found plenty and decided to sketch them and make our own ladybugs out of beeswax modeling clay. We read a lady bug story and used to books to look at all the different types of lady birds there are in the world. There was even a lady bug obstacle course built! All of the ladybugs we caught that day were of course set free after we were done with our lesson. It was a lovely cool spring morning of exploration and play.
