Ants are one of those annoying creatures that are also truly fascinating. I have always wanted my kids to have an ant farm, but until our youngest quits being so curious, we will wait. I’m terrified of them getting out and being all over our house because she “wanted to look at them in her hands.” She plays with them in the dirt along with the worms she and her sister love. They’re a crazy pair for sure.
With Spring quickly approaching, more time will be spent outside and I thought, why not take advantage of their curiosity. These Ant Life Cycle Coloring pages are a great way to start a unit, fill in some extra time or just for fun!
4 Sets of Coloring Pages Include:
- Printed words for Toddlers to just color the pages
- Traceable letters for early writers to practice and color
- Manuscript names to trace
- Cursive names to trace
If you’re looking for some great readers to use while learning about Ants, check out these great titles. Many are probably available at your local library, or you could get a Kindle version for most of them on Amazon. I love using my Kindle Reader app to read with my kids. I have so many titles at the tip of my fingers in just minutes!
