This Eating Frog Craft is absolutely adorable, super easy to make, and makes a fun activity to play with your kids!
Using common craft equipment you might already have laying around your house – including a recycled toilet paper roll – you’ll find this craft comes together in a snap.
How to Make Your Own Eating Frog
This eating frog craft comes together so quickly and easily! Just grab a few supplies and follow our easy step-by-step instructions.
Once it’s all assembled, then you and your kids have a fun little frog to play with. You can practice getting the fly into the frog’s mouth, just like those classic cup-and-ball toys, or act out silly songs and stories with your frog. Really, the sky’s the limit!
- toilet paper roll
- green and red construction papers
- black marker
- stapler (and staples, of course)
- printed copy of eyes and fly
Eating Frog Craft Instructions:
Cut a piece of green construction paper to fit wrapped around the toilet paper roll and glue in place.
Squeeze one end of the toilet paper roll shut and staple to secure.
Cut a length of yarn, long enough to go all the way through the mouth and hang out a bit. Feed it all the way through the toilet paper roll, then staple the end of the yarn in the middle of the closed end of the roll.
Cut a red paper strip that will be the frog’s mouth and glue it inside the roll. (Make sure it doesn’t trap the yarn – the yarn should still go through the center of the mouth, meaning it should be in the middle of the red circle.)
Print and cut out the eyes, then glue them to the toilet paper roll, near the mouth. (Click here if you haven’t already printed them out.)
Cut out the fly, then glue it to the yarn.
Draw the arms and legs in a piece of green construction paper, then cut them and glue them onto the bottom of the frog’s body.
Now you have a friendly frog to play with your kids!
