  • Pencil/marker

  • Scissors

  • Pair of Googly eyes

  • Dark green/light green/ brown construction paper

  • Glue Stick

  • Frog/Lily pad template (bottom of page)

Frog template:

The frog can be printed on a half sheet, and the lily pad needs to be printed on a full sheet of paper.


Step 1: Print and cut out the frog and lily pad template.

Step 2: Trace the frog onto the light green construction paper and lily pad on the dark green construction paper. Cut them out.

Step 3: Using your scrap paper leftovers, take the brown and dark green construction paper and cut it into a single long strip (length of the paper). Glue the ends like so. Overlap and fold until you create a zig-zag.

Step 4: Glue on the googly eyes. Using scrap leftover paper, cut circles out in random sizes. Glue them to the back of the frog.

Step 5: Flip the frog over and glue down the zigzag we made earlier.Using your marker, draw a few lines on the lily pad. Glue down the frog to the front center of the lily pad.

Step 6: Push down the frog and let go! Watch your frog spring into action!
