Do your kids love bugs like mine do? All kinds of creepy crawling, flying bugs. There aren’t too many that really creep my girls out. I have learned to tolerate them, but I’m not really in love with them. Except for lady bugs. Their little red and shiny bodies with all the tiny black spots. They are so darn cute and no two are the same. They make perfect theme for these Ladybug Counting Cards as well.

Have you used counting cards before? These free printables can be printed out, laminated and used over and over. They are helpful for children of all stages in counting development. If your child is just learning to count, if your child is learning the sequence of numbers, if your child is learning to connect the visual to the verbal or so many other stages. Even if your child has mastered counting to ten, these cards will help reiterate the sequence and numbers for him or her. Using the lady bug manipulatives also helps with fine motor skills. How fantastic is that? And they are just so cute, aren’t they?

  1. Where did you get your miniature erasers that look like lady bugs? I found some lady bug buttons, but not the erasers. I assume the other cute erasers (Easter eggs, for instance) were found at the same place.
    I just love your activities!

    1. I always get my mini erasers from the Target Dollar Spot, but they are seasonal so you have to grab them when you see them. You can also try Ebay as they sometimes have previous sets available.

  2. Your activities are amazing! I have been a math consultant for preschool, National Board, and have taught typical and special needs students for over 25 years. I recognize the value in all you have prepared for the students so that they can learn their numbers easily as they are having marvelous and engaging fun! Thank you so much for your creative genius!
