In the last blog article we listed some Fun Facts about frogs. We also had a free download of a frog coloring page for the kids (or you) to color. In this blog we want to share some of our favorite craft activities that we found on the web that are simple and fun to do. There was so much to choose from – it was hard to make a decision. Frog activities are so much fun!
This is such a cute idea of mixing paper with balloons! And you don’t have to be a balloon artist to do it. All it takes is a round balloon. We found this at Clever Patch.
Here is a recipe for slime for your slime loving preschoolers. Frog Lily Pond Slime is from Kindergarten Connection and is a great activity that can be turned into an entire pond life sensory play activity.
I usually list very simple preschool crafts but this origami frog activity looks like so much fun! An adult or older child will definitely have to make the frogs, but after that preschoolers will have so much fun playing! This activity is from ItsyBitsyFun and there also is a bunch of games listed to play!
I love quiet books but don’t have the time to sew one. But a no sew quiet book is perfect because I always have lots of felt and glue sticks around. This frog jumping section will keep any toddler busy. I found this at Powerful Mothering and she also gives instructions on how to make the quiet book.
Have some spare paper lunch bags laying around? Then get ready to turn them into some frog puppets. Use our free frog paper bag puppet pattern designed by The Tucson Puppet Lady herself! It’s a great activity for the kids to color, cut out, glue and then play with.
Need a puppet with a moving mouth and makes expressions? We’ve got the pattern!
And if you are really bitten by the craft bug, you can use our Frog Puppet Sewing Pattern to make your own puppet. It is available as a digital download so you can start sewing immediately. We recommend using fleece and felt fabrics because they are inexpensive and readily available from craft stores. Customers tell us how easy our step by step patterns (with lots of pictures) are to follow especially after watching the video tutorials. In fact you can watch our free video tutorial on how to sew the frog puppet right now!
what our customers are saying:
“I love her patterns. Pattern well written and easy to follow.”
“I love how the puppet turned out. Please keep the patterns coming!”
NEXT BLOG FEATURES BOOKS AND FREE PUPPET PATTERN
In our next blog, we’ll be sharing a few books which feature frogs that preschoolers (and older kids) enjoy. The books range from fact to fiction. We’ll also have a free pattern download for a felt frog hand puppet. You don’t even have to know how to sew, the whole puppet can be made using a hot glue gun. Stay tuned to our blog to get your free download.
