My kids love to chase frogs and collect leaves...so I thought making a frog out of leaves would join these two loves in perfect harmony! We took a little nature walk to find the perfect-sized rock for our slimy frog and collected the perfect shade of green leaves. Together these nature findings became a very adorable froggy friend!
How we did it:
- rocks / stones
- googly eyes
After we collected our rock and leaves, we grabbed some glue, googly eyes, and some felt scraps in pink and green colors.
My two little crafters got to tearing up the leaves they collected. They enjoyed this part a little too much!
We added some glue to the rock and they began to put this frog together, piece by piece. It was like a little frog puzzle.
After our rock was a nice frog green, the kids added some felt and eyes which really turned the rock into a frog!
With a felt smile and froggy legs, this rock was hardly recognizable. He now sits on my desk where my children like to remove him for the occasional leapfrog and ribbet sound off!
