Frog Craft Idea
These amazing little amphibians can live just about anywhere from deserts to frozen tundras to right outside in your backyard.
To make this easy and “ribbiting” craft, you’ll just need a few supplies like a leftover party cup, colored paper, scissors, and glue.
With our free template, you’ll have little frogs hopping around in no time! They’re fun for kids to create and play with.
- Green paper cup
- Colored cardstock or construction paper
- Frog template (enter your email in the form at the end of this post to have the link sent to you)
Download the frog template, print, and cut out the pieces you need.
Start by gluing the eyes to the circular parts of the frog’s head.
Position the paper cup upside down and glue the belly to the lip portion of the paper cup.
Place the inner legs almost to the edge of the belly and glue them to the cup.
Next, fold along the dashed line on the outer legs. Place glue or a glue dot on the folded section and glue them to the cup, just outside the belly.
Finish up by gluing the head to the top and middle of the cup, above the frog’s inner legs and belly.
