My favorite insect by far is the ladybug. Ladybugs are the one insect I have never been afraid of and have always liked to hold. Their bright red color is so beautiful.
And did you know that a lot of cultures consider ladybugs to be good luck?
If your children enjoy ladybugs as much as I do, I hope they will also enjoy my Ladybug Sudoku game.
Note: For more Ladybug printables and activities, see my Insects Unit Study page.
Sudoku is a great way to exercise your child’s brain with fun, engaging, puzzles that stimulate critical thinking and cognitive skills.
The goal of Sudoku – at least when played the usual way by adults – is to fill in a 9×9 grid such that each row, column, and 3×3 sub-grid includes one and only one of each digit from 1 to 9.
Depending on the number of blank spots in the Sudoku puzzle, the difficulty can range from quite easy to extremely challenging. (I’m personally a fan of the really challenging puzzles!)
In the Ladybug Sudoku Puzzles I am sharing today, I have made the game kid-friendly by adapting it to use images instead of numbers.
Here is a sneak peak at the four Ladybug Sudoku puzzles included in the download:
As you can see, I have included one advanced playing board with a 9×9 grid and three basic playing boards that have been shrunk to a 4×4 grid in order to make the game age appropriate for young children.
