Chipper Recycle Craft: Paper Plate Frog

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: 

-kid-friendly scissors

-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:
