This simple frog craft is great to use in the classroom or fun to make at home!
- Gather materials to make your frog craft. You will need a paper lunch bag, some black, green and red construction paper, glue, scissors, a paintbrush and green paint.
- Start by cutting a few inches off the bottom of the paper bag, this will make the bag look more like a short chubby frog!
- Paint the paper bag with the green paint.
- Get more paint and paint the back, and let dry.
- While your child is painting cut out two large green circles, and two smaller black ones.
- Cut out a long rectangle from the red paper for a tongue.
- Glue the black circles onto the green ones to make the eyes.
- Roll the red paper tightly to make a curly tongue.
- When the paper bag frog craft is dry, glue the eyes and tongue on!

” Why Frogs Are Wet“ by Judy Hawes is good fact-filled nonfiction book all about frogs. This book is great for the 4-5-year-old crowd, but the pictures are wonderful for all ages. The text is long so I would suggest reading a few pages at a time. It covers the evolution of frogs, life cycle and more! Great to pair with your frog craft! ” An Extraordinary Egg“ by Leo Lionni is a very cute story about three frogs who find a wonderful egg, thinking it must be a chicken egg they are excited to have a new friend when the chicken hatches, even though it’s really an alligator! Kids love this story because they think these are the silliest frogs ever for not knowing that the chicken isn’t a chicken at all!
