stART: The Bad-Tempered Ladybird

For stART this week Andy and I read The Bad-Tempered Ladybird by Eric Carle. This gorgeous book was part of Andy's birthday present from his Gran.



"The bad-tempered ladybird picks fights with every animal it meets, but soon learns the importance of friends. In this humorous story, Eric Carle explores the concepts of size and time through brightly coloured pictures."

The animals he meets each have their own flap similar to The Very Hungry Caterpillar book also by Eric Carle. Each flap has a clock at the top with the time which he meets the animal which is great for older kids.


So I printed out the templates for this ladybird craft and Andy coloured it in with red and black...


He also glued some eyes onto the face and I covered a cd with red construction paper for the base of the ladybird...


Then Andy glued on the wings, face and black dots...


The finished project...

  1. What a lovely ladybird! Doesn't look bad-tempered at all.
