We’ve heard this so many times April showers bring May flowers. These love bugs love to splish splash in any body of water. Hopefully, your children wear the correct gears before jumping in puddles…then again children often jump in and not think. Why does mom or dad get upset about changing shoes and clothes for the fourth time before school starts in minutes? It’s such an easy fix to get another set of clothes from the closet. If mom and dad were prepared they wouldn’t be late as usual.
For those rainy days and to avoid the chaos of redressing remember a shower of rain = muddy puddles and call for Rainboots. April and May are the months when rain boots, rain jackets, and umbrellas greet Miss Sue every morning. On our backyard adventure and splashing we heard frogs, birds and dug for worms. We then completed this craft project about frogs.
For this craft, you will need green felt. This you can get at any hobby store including Walmart. I cut this in a large circle. I made a couple of these for each child.
Grab your scissors ( the kiddie ones worked). Fold the felt in half then cut a triangle shape.
See how it looks when you unfold. The triangular cut out is that little dip in the lily pad. You can make the size to your liking. I made enough for each child.
Add your three-dimensional frog or whatever ones you can find. If all you have are the stickers this will look good too. I used hot glue to adhere the frog as it’s a little heavier than the sticker ones.
Children add their stickers. If the sticker doesn’t stick to the felt as you would like then, use tacky glue to help.
Isn’t this cute?! Some added pom poms to their work.
Frogs and Turtles do live in ponds together but, I would not put them both in a cage as the turtle may eat the frog (so much for the food chain).
