Paper plate frog

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 one more about our amphibian friends.

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

This little guy is just one of my paper plate animal crafts and I have lots more!

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

Our hopping fly catcher frog is ready for action!

You can make this little guy at anytime of the year but I think he is best suited to Springtime! Why not go for a walk around local ponds with your children and see if you can spot any of these little guys hopping around. 

Maybe you want to make lots of these! There are many different frog species and even speckled frogs so you could make slightly different ones and have a entire collection. 

I always recommend using your crafts for pretend play afterwards. Encourage your kids to think what other animals might spend their time in water too. Perhaps you could do some crafts for these too, i.e ducks!! I have a Kinder duck craft is you are interested.
