Ladybugs were a fun theme that the kids liked a lot. We saw lots of ladybugs in Finland last summer but haven't really seen any over here. We looked at different kinds of ladybugs on the internet and inspired by the images the kids produced the ladybugs above.
We also talked about their life cycle as well as aphids in general. The kids were amused by the relationship of aphids and ants.
The ladybugs below are about 20 cm in diameter and we stuck them on the wall by the blackboard in our library/study room.
