One of my favorite signs of spring is when the ladybugs start appearing. I just know it means that the long cold winter is almost over and the days of warm sun, green grass, and playing outside are coming! And you just can't beat a summer night watching fireflies light up the sky like mini fireworks.

My boys love exploring our backyard and searching for all sorts of caterpillars and bugs. If your kids do too I have a super fun set of insect activity pages that they will love, and it's the perfect complement to our Family Dinner Book Club pick James and the Giant Peach.

Insect Activity Pages and Coloring Sheets

Kids love bugs. Insect activities are perfect for spring and summer, when they wake up from their winter naps and start getting ready for warm weather.

One of our favorite books featuring fun insect characters is James and the Giant Peach, the classic Roald Dahl story, which was later made into an Academy award nominated Disney film.

James and the Giant Peach makes a great Family Dinner Book Club pick, and these bug printables help make your dinner fun! Use the the coloring pages as placemats or dining room decorations, and design your own bug finger puppets to use as place cards! There's something for everyone inside.

Get the whole Family Dinner Book Club experience with a themed dinner menu from Chef Sarah Elizabeth and the full book list from Growing Book by Book.
