Paper Plate Frog Preview

Frogs are an important part of the food chain.

They eat all kinds of the worlds flies with their long tongues. 

We've created a frog out of a paper plate and some paint.

This frog craft is very easy to make and minimal supplies are needed.

It is a great way to teach a little more about our amphibian friends.

We have even given him a long tongue, use this to demonstrate just how frogs catch all those flies.

Paper Plate Frog Crafts for Kids

Let's hop into it and turn our paper plate into a fly catching frog friend.

Craft Supplies:

  • Construction paper (pink, green, white)
  • Paint (green and red)
  • Paint brush
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Black marker
Step By Step Instructions for our Paper Plate Frog Crafts for Kids

Step #1:

Fold your paper plate in half.

Paint the inside with red paint, adding a line around the outside of green. The green is your frogs' lips. Allow this to dry. 

Step #2:

Paint the outside of the plate with green paint. Again, allow this to dry.

Step #3:

Create arms and legs out of the green construction paper. They are all the same shape, you just need two large ones and two small ones. 

Step #4:

Cut out a head from the green paper, it is just enough space for his eyes. Add a little extra on the bottom so we can glue it to the plate. 

Cut out two ovals from white paper and draw on pupils with the black marker.

Step #5:

Cut a strip of pink paper. Round one end, this is our tongue. Wrap it around the marker to curl it. 

Step #6

Glue your frog's eyes onto the top of the paper plate.

Step #7

Now, just glue on your arms and legs. These will be glued to the bottom of the plate. 

Step #8

Glue the flat edge of the tongue to the center of the inside of your frogs mouth. 

Our hopping fly catcher frog is ready for action! 

Promoting the importance of recycling and you get a cute frog out of it, you can't go wrong.
