I love, love, love the idea of a sweet ladybug theme for a little girl’s birthday party! Who wouldn’t be enamored by little red (or pink!) ladybugs with adorable spots? And if their cuteness isn’t enough to convince you, did you know ladybugs are a sign of good luck?
So, make planning your next birthday party easy as 1-2-3 with these lucky ladybug decorations, crafts and birthday party games.
Older children will enjoy painting ladybug rocks with acrylic paints. Plastic wiggle eyes are a fun addition.
When you are entertaining a group of young children it is always nice to end the party with a quiet story time.Favorite ladybug books to read are: The Grouchy LadyBug by Eric Carl, Ladybug Girl by Jacky Davis and David Soman, Are You a Ladybug? by Judy Allen and Tudor Humphries
