This week, Chipper created this fun paper plate frog! Not only can this craft be made from materials lying around the house, this craft also incorporates a fun science lesson!
Here’s what you need:
-tape or glue (Chipper used double-sided tape!)
-three pieces of construction paper (one red, one green, one white)
-a green and black marker
-a paper plate
First, color the back of the paper plate green with a marker. (You can use a crayon, paint, or any other medium as well.)
Fold the paper plate in half. Draw and cut out four frog feet from green construction paper. Draw and cut out a tongue shape from red construction paper. Draw and cut out eyes from white paper. Attach to folded plate with tape or glue like so:
And voila! Here is a fun and cute paper plate frog.
Along with this craft, teach your child about frogs! Here are some fun frog facts:
-Frogs hibernate in the winter
-Instead of drinking water through their mouths, frogs absorb water through their skin!
-A group of frogs is called an “army”!
-Frogs can be found on every continent except for Antarctica
Also, you can do frog-jumps around the house/park/backyard to reiterate the importance of exercise to your little one! Here’s a fun video on various animal exercises:
