Family Friday – Lucy the Ladybug

For this week’s Family Friday, we will be practicing our counting skills with Lucy the Ladybug! Read about Lucy’s time at the farm through our Alphabet Animals series. Your children will create their own Lucy the Ladybug and practice counting while putting dots on her back. Read our step-by-step guide and have fun playing this interactive activity with your child at home!
