Let’s Make a Frog!!

Paint the yoghurt pot green to create a frogs body.

Paint the Yoghurt Pot Green

Our frog begins with a solid green body!

Paint the yoghurt pot green with acrylic paint. If the acrylic paint is thick in consistency, the yoghurt pot may only need one coat of paint. If required, add another layer of paint.

Make Two Big Froggy Eyes

To make the trademark big froggy eyes, dip into the craft box and gather two medium sized white pom-poms and two black buttons.

Use PVA glue to affix a black button to each pom-pom.

Once the frogs body has thoroughly dried, glue the two eyes to the top of the yoghurt pot.

Add Spots

Frogs a rarely one solid color and have various marking on their bodies. To capture this characteristic, add a number of green or pink spots to the frogs body.

To add texture and dimension to the frogs body, we’ve created our spots out of felt. Felt can be difficult for children to cut, so if you do not have felt to hand or if you think it could be too tricky for your child, replace this material with paper.
