Isn’t that frog’s expression so happy? It goes perfectly with spring!

If you don’t need a handmade card, you can always make this frog craft without the card part. Simply trace the head onto a flat piece of paper instead of a folded one and you’re all set.

Make This Craft With Young Kids

We love making kids crafts that can work with a wide variety of ages. That way, if you have multiple kids, they can all work on it together.

If this craft has too many steps for your child, here are some ways you can adapt it to make it even more simple.

First, you can cut out the pieces ahead of time. If your child can use scissors properly, this is an excellent way for them to sharpen up their scissor skills. But, if they haven’t learned that yet, just cut out the template and have the pieces ready to go.

Secondly, consider assembling part of the craft for them. You can still involve them in it by asking for the parts of the body. Questions like, “Can you help me find the frog’s leg?” will help them feel helpful.

Finally, you can skip the body part altogether and just make the head! This will save you lots of steps and cutting. It’s a great option for young preschoolers.
