We first started playing board games with my daughter when she was about 3. It takes patience to play games with kids but it’s fun to have more activities we can do together.
This ladybug game presents a fun new opportunity for us to play games together. My daughter loves the bright colors.
What you need to play
- Printable gameboard (download below)
- Buttons or small figures to use as playing pieces.
I highly recommend laminating the game board or putting it in a sheet protector. I finally bought my own laminator. It was inexpensive and now I can make activity sheets or games like this one reusable by laminating them at home.
1 – Print out the game board and playing cards.
2 – Cut apart the cards, shuffle, and place in a stack face down.
3 – Get 2 buttons or figurines to use as playing pieces.
4 – Place the playing pieces at the start. One person pulls a card and moves to the corresponding color. Then the next player goes.
5 – Take turns until someone reaches the finish line.
This game is great for practicing color recognition in younger children. The colors are bright and fun, perfect for springtime.
Simple games are great for practicing taking turns. Asking young kids to sit still and wait for their turn is an important skill for them to learn. Games like this one are the perfect way to practice.

I highly recommend printing the game on cardstock if possible, or having it printed at your local Fedex Office store. The file is 6 pages long and prints on 8.5″x11″ paper. It has an instruction page, a gameboard, and 4 pages of playing cards.
