Paper Plate Frog Craft
- Paper plate
- Green paint
- Cardstock – black, white, and red
- 1” circle paper punch
- Brown sharpie
- Black sharpie, thick
- X-acto knife
- Glue stick and/or school glue
- Clear tape
Begin by painting a paper plate green.
We used 2 different shades of green paint on each frog for texture. Let paint dry.
Cut the paper plate in half.
Form 2 circles on one half of the plate. We used the rim of a mason jar. Cut out. Then trace those circles on white paper. Cut inside the lines so the white cardstock circles are smaller than the green circles. Use the 1” circle paper punch to punch out 2 circles from the black cardstock.
Use a glue stick to adhere all the pieces together to form the frog’s eyes. Then, glue to the top of the other half of the paper plate.
Draw 2 small circles underneath the eyes with the brown marker for the frog’s nostrils. Using the black sharpie, draw a large mouth across the bottom of the plate.
Now, have an adult use the x-acto knife to form about a 2” slit along the mouth.
Cut a long strip of the red cardstock, wide enough just to fit inside the slit. Roll one end of the paper around a pencil and curl up until you reach the other end.
Slide the end of the curled red paper into the mouth slit. Secure to the back of the paper plate with a piece of clear tape.
