We are always in the mood for making Spring Crafts for Kids (check out our Movable Bird Paper Doll or have fun learning with a Ladybug Shape Matching Cardboard Activity).
If you want to learn How to Draw a Frog, we have a step-by-step tutorial for you too.
We love frogs – you can tell that by how many frog crafts we have on our website.
Today we will show you how to make a silly frog on a lily pad that is having a fun time pointing its tongue out.
We made our frog green, but not all the frogs are green – you already know that.
So, you can make your frog any color you wish and share it with us afterward – we will be glad to see it!
How to Make the Frog on a Lily Pad Craft
What you need:
- printable template (optional)
- cardstock (dark green and brown)
- color papers (green, pink, and red)
- circle puncher
- white paper
- two big googly eyes
- white marker
- ruler with circle shapes
Step by Step Tutorial
The Lily Pad
Draw a circle with a 16 cm diameter on the dark green cardstock.
Cut out the circle and a triangle shape to form the lily pad.
Take the white marker and decorate it.
Draw a strip with dimensions 1 x 12 cm on the dark green cardstock.
Cut out the strip and make a fold on one end of it.
Apply some glue to it and glue the strip on the lily pad.
Take the scissors and make the other end of the strip pointy.
Draw an oval shape on the brown cardstock.
Cut it out.
Glue the oval shape on the green strip and ensure the pointy part peeks out. Our reedmace is now complete.
Reinforce the green strip (the stem) with another piece of green cardstock if it doesn’t stand straight and bends.
Decorate the reedmace with the white marker as shown.
First, we need to cut out a green rectangle with 7 x 15 cm dimensions.
Make a roll and glue its ends together.
Glue the roll in the center of the lily pad.
Draw two strips with dimensions 1 x 13 cm on the green paper.
Cut them out.
Form two frog legs and feet by folding the two strips as shown.
Glue the legs inside the roll and the feet onto the lily pad.
Punch out two green circles to form the eyes of the frog.
Fold a small part of the green circles.
Glue them on top of the frog’s body.
Draw two circles (smaller than the punched green ones) on the white paper.
Cut them out.
Glue them on the green circles.
Take the big googly eyes and attach them to the white circles.
Now punch out one red circle.
Fold a small part of it,
Glue it on the frog as a tongue.
Draw two small circles on the pink paper.
Cut them out.
Glue them on the frog as cheeks.
