April is National Frog Month and March is National Craft Month. See where I’m going with this? There are a lot of fun ways for kids to learn about the frog. Games, activities, printables and of course, crafts.

This is a fun project that doesn’t take too much time, and then after they’re all done making their frogs, kids can have a puppet show! These would be fun for reading Frog & Toad Are Friends out loud, don’t you think? That’s one of my all time favorite children’s books!

When my kids were little we used to have the VHS version of that book and oh my gosh, I swear I knew it by heart. It played over and over again, but I really didn’t mind. It was so darn cute!

Start off with a green bag. You can find these at WalMart with the gift wrap supplies. See how the bottom of the bag has a white section with a barcode and other print?

Well, if yours has that too, simply cover it with some scrapbook paper.

Notes from Amanda

You can use a regular brown or white paper lunch bag and paint it with green craft paint.
