The Ladybug Themed Activities were a lot of fun and the kids had a blast! They loved making paper plate ladybugs, learning about the life cycle of a ladybug, eating apple ladybug snacks and taking part in lots of fun and engaging Math & Literacy Centers. The Ladybug Themed Matching Math Center is perfect for developing young children’s counting, matching and fine-motor skills.
Ladybug Themed Matching Math Center
What you need:
- Center printed out, laminated and cut
- A flat surface
How to complete the activity:
Simply cut out the cards and laminate. Give each child 4 cards, shuffle the rest and place it face down in the center. Children take turns to pick a card up. If they can match that card with one of theirs, they put it down in front of them and place one of the cards in their hands back on the pile. The child with the most pairs at the end wins.
Activity: Memory Game
Place the cards face down in the center of the circle (two different sets). Children move clockwise and pick a card up from each set. If the cards match, they keep them, if not, they put them back in the same place, face down. Continue until there are no cards left. The child with the most pairs win.
