How to Make the Paper Lantern Frog
What you need:
- printable template
- glue stick
- coloring supplies
- paper roll (optional)
Step by Step Tutorial
Print out the frog lantern template.
If your child prefers to color the frog, then make sure you print out the black and white frog template.
You can print out the “already colored” version of the frog template.
Fold the lined piece in half. The child may need a little help with this part, and that’s okay!
Once it’s folded in half, you can cut on each line. Make sure that you don’t cut through the non-dashed line!
Take glue and apply it.
Place the lines you previously cut and glue the whole piece of paper onto the stomach piece of the frog.
Add more glue to the side.
It would be best if you circularly folded the piece of paper.
Take the frog’s legs and fold them accordion style.
Make sure you fold both legs of the frog as an accordion.
Now you’ll want to glue the head.
It’s time to glue the arms on the frog.
The final look of the frog will look something like this below!
This frog is so much fun for kids!
They can bounce the frog’s legs and sing frog songs!
