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 sorr-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. They come in many different colours—orange, yellow, blue, brown, red, purple, black. Some have spots. Some don’t. Some have stripes. Some even have a stunning metallic iridescence. All are known for being just too cute.  :)

LADYBUG (LADYBIRD BEETLE) ~ FUN FACTS / SCIENTIFIC INFORMATION FOR KIDS ~ FREE PRINTABLE (A4)

Giving glory to God as designer, this FREE ladybug article for kids that I did for my kids is available for you in English or French.

Ladybug free printable Article for Kids    Ladybug free printable article for kids

Ladybugs – quick fun facts for kids  (Answers in Genesis) from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Divinely Designed Defenses  (Answers in Genesis) 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.
