I recently found a few fun art projects and lessons that connect to Eric Carle's story The Grouchy Lady Bug. The story is geared towards a young crowd and lends itself to a variety of art, literary, math and science connections.

Here are a few follow-up's to the story:

And for those of you that can't get enough, there are more games and puzzles from the Grouchy Lady Bug story.
