5 Little Speckled Frogs,
Sat on a little log,
Eating some most delicious grubs,
YUM YUM!
One jumped into the pool,
Where it was nice and cool
And now there are 1, 2, 3, 4 green speckled frogs!

Equipment

  • Scissors
  • Printer

Instructions

  • Print out the frog paper puppets and cut out the body parts.
  • Trace the front, back and head parts onto one of green coloured paper; trace the belly pattern on the other green paper; and the small circles on pink paper.
  • Cut out the traced patterns from the coloured paper.
  • Attach the 2 pink circles on both sides of the cheek parts of the green head.
  • Then attach the 2 eyes to the bumps on the green cutout head.
  • Place the front template on top of the green cut out and cut along the yellow lines.
  • Glue the belly section of the green body of your frog puppet and then place the belly on top and press in place. You will need to move the legs over it as the belly is slightly larger than the space.
  • Glue the front body with belly in place to the middle of the green back.
  • Glue the head on the top of the body making sure that you have an overlap so that it stays in place.
  • Use the black marker to draw on the mouth and nostrils.
  • Glue the paper frog on a jumbo craft stick to finish the puppet (you may find this is better done with some PVA/School Glue instead of a glue stick)
