Lady bugs bring good luck it is said and this adorable little creature will provide kids with hours of craft fun. You can make a whole colony of them and have lots of good luck.


The name “ladybug” was coined by European farmers who prayed to the Virgin Mary when pests began eating their crops. After ladybugs came and wiped out the invading insects, the farmers named them “beetle of Our Lady.” This eventually was shortened to “lady beetle” and “ladybug.” Source: National Geographic – Ladybug
