    • Frog Puppet — Use brown lunch bags for the body, and have paper cutouts of a frog head, frog mouth, arms and legs and a tongue that the children first color, and then glue to the paper bags. The head goes on top of the bag, and the mouth part and tongue underneath as to make a moveable, talkable frog!

    • Pond Sweet Pond — Paint a rock green. When the paint is dry glue on wiggle eyes. Next glue pieces of grass and twigs onto a white, sterilized Styrofoam tray when the glue is dry cover the tray with blue plastic wrap securing the wrap to the back of the tray with tape. Finally glue the rock frog onto a construction paper lily pad. Place the frog on top of the pond
