15 Montessori Inspired Ladybird Activities & Kid Blogger Network Cash Giveaway

Today I am very excited to bring you a cash giveaway. Scroll down to read all the details!
I also would like to share the activities that I have recently prepared for the ladybird unit for the preschool.

 1.Ladybird Tweezing Activity for Practical Life.

This was very popular! I purchased a sample from an artificial grass seller and some wooden ladybird stickers from a craft shop. The children used the tweezers to transfer the ladybird which helps them develop their finger muscles.

2.Ladybird Maths Activity for Number Recognition. Details of this activity are here.

3. Ladybird Cards and Counters (with a twist) : This is for number recognition for 1 to 10 (although in the photo I only have 1-5) and for developing fine motor skills.

4.Ladybird Life Cycle Three Part Cards from Montessori Print Shop (free)

5. Potato Print Ladybirds: Simply show children how to  use a full sized potato dipped in red paint for the body, half a potato dipped in black for the head. The children can then add the spots and legs using a paintbrush. 

Below are other marvellous ladybird activities from Kid Blogger Network.
