Frog Pond Game

Frogs or turtles--who will land on the lily pads and win?

4 - 9
Est. Time:
<1 hour

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. milk caps
  2. sidewalk chalk
  3. googly eyes (optional)
  4. glue
  1. Twelve milk caps or water gallon caps will make 6 game pieces. Glue the bottom sides of two caps together. I quickly found out that they don't really stick together unless there is something in between cut a circle of cardboard or craft foam to put in between each pair of caps.

  2. After the glue between the caps dries, draw details on top of the bottle caps and glue on googly eyes. The red bottle caps were our turtles. The frogs were made from the clear bottle caps with a circle of green craft foam stuck to the top.

  3. Using sidewalk chalk or sidewalk chalk paint, draw a pond with 3 lily pads.

  4. This is how it looked when we were finished. (It took longer than I thought it would for the kids to color it in!)

  5. One player pushes the turtles across the pond and the other player pushes the frogs across the pond. The player to land the most animals on the lily pads wins! For a challenge, assign different point values to each lily pad.
