Paper cup

Green tissue paper


Red pipe cleaner

Black construction paper

White paper

Green construction paper





To begin, take your tissue paper and cut a long rectangular piece. Wrap this piece around your paper cup completely covering the outside. Tape or glue the tissue paper so it wont shift. Flip your cup upside down and set aside. This will be your frog's body.

Next cut out some fabulous frog legs for your frog. You can use your own imagination or the templates provided at the address below.

Cut out the frog legs from green construction paper- make sure you cut out four of them. Attach the large ones to the sides of your cup and the small ones to the front. Use the picture as a guide. Also cut out a large and wide triangle for your frog's mouth. Tape or glue the mouth in the center of the frog.

Cut some large frog eyes from the white paper and attach them to the front of the cup.

Next take your black construction paper and white paper and cut out a very simple black bug body and white bug wings. Assemble your bug and set it aside.

Next take your red pipe cleaner and cut it in half. Attach the bug to one end and attach the other end to the frog's mouth in its center. This will be your frog's tongue. Twist the pipe cleaner so it looks like the bug is flying past your frog.

Now decorate your frog further with crayons. Add more facial features and decorations- whatever you wish!

Enjoy Crafting!
