Ladybugs have their own inbuilt sophisticated chemical factory? Why? To make them taste ikky. They build complex – and different – chemical recipes from the same basic ingredients (just like a chemist) and squeeze these chemicals out through their joints and seams. Their colourful coat of armour is a warning to predators. “Don’t eat me! Or you’ll be sor-r-y.” In this post, we explore these amazing little critters and you will find FREE ladybug colouring pages, puzzles, crafts and creative ideas for kids to go with it… enjoy!

DID YOU KNOW:  There are over 5000 species of ladybugs? The Coccinellidae family are small beetles. God made an amazing variety in many different colours—orange, yellow, blue, brown, red, purple, black. Some have spots. Some don’t. Some have stripes. Some have other markings. Some even have a stunning metallic iridescence. All are known for being just too cute.  :)

BIBLE VERSES

Genesis 1:20-23  And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that has life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moves, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

Job 12:7-10  But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach you; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell you; or speak to the earth, and it shall teach you; and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto you. Who knows not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this? In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind.

Psalm 33:8  Let all the Earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him. For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast.

LADYBUG (LADYBIRD BEETLE) ~ FUN FACTS / SCIENTIFIC INFORMATION FOR KIDS ~ FREE PRINTABLE

FREE Ladybug article for kids; free printable

Ladybugs – fun facts for kids  (answersingenesis) from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Divinely Designed Defenses  (answersingenesis) The Curse ushered in a brutal world of animals hunting and killing each other to survive. Even in the midst of this death and violence we see a silver lining. God has lavished His care and mercy even on the smallest of creatures, which have an arsenal of defenses to thrive in a world teeming with hungry predators… Consider ladybird beetles. Their colourful armour is a warning. If harassed, they squeeze out a foul-tasting substance from their joints and seams; from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Bugs use sophisticated chemical techniques  (creation.com; scroll down) Chemists thought that they were the only ones to have ever used ‘combinatorial chemistry’—a technique in which hundreds of different chemicals are assembled from the same basic building blocks… Ladybird pupae secrete defensive chemicals… a fascinating mix of complex substances… The chemicals in the droplets also continue to change, over time, forming new links and combinations which add to this ‘potent cocktail’ of defence.
