Craft Corner – Crazy Frog!!

26 Feb

I love doing craft projects with Junior. It’s the perfect time to let go and encourage him to have fun! While I do take Junior to art & craft classes, I love to indulge in some good old home fun!

So, in this post I’m going to explain how I made Crazy Frog! Now remember, it takes a bit of time to complete, only because you have to wait for the paint to dry. It’s a perfect project for a rainy day (provided, of course you can get this to dry under a fan!) or if you just have some time to while away.

I love Crazy Frog, since the final product is ‘like 3D” and kids can use it as model / toy. With Junior there a few Crazy Stories that followed!!

This is what Junior and I used:

  • Small paper plate
  • Red & green colored paper
  • Pair of scissors
  • Glue
  • Set of googly eyes
  • Poster paint (I didn’t have any lying around so had to settle for water colors)
  • Paint Brush
  • A strip of card

How we made our Crazy Frog:

  1. Fold the paper plate in half and color the top side of the plate in green – this will be the body of Crazy Frog.
  2. Once it is dry, you can start painting the ‘mouth’ of Crazy Frog in red
  3. Leave Crazy Frog to dry while we get the rest his body done
  4. Using the red paper draw out the shape of a long curly tongue and get your little one to cut out the tongue
  5. Now draw the shape of two frog arms and frog legs and once again get your little one to cut it out.
  6. Cut out two square inch blocks, that are to be pasted on top as eyes. These need to be painted in green as well.
  7. Once the paint on Crazy Frog’s body has dried off, fix the arms on the top of your paint. Next paste the legs in the bottom of the plate.
  8. Paste the tongue inside the mouth, so that the tongue curls out and Crazy Frog is ready to catch some flies!
  9. Lastly, paste the squares of cardboard on top for his ‘eyes’ and paste on the googly eyes

Crazy Frog is ready to go!

If you have more time try the following:

  • A spotty frog! The body of the frog can be painted with spots!
  • You can roll up some colored tissue paper to make Crazy Frog a little more gross!!

Skills that can be acquired from this activity:

  1. Cutting practices with the scissors
  2. Practice painting
  3. Kids can learn that frogs have a long tongue to catch sticky flies
  4. Mini anatomy lesson to teach the shape of a frog’s arms and legs

Do let me know if you try this project out and any variations??
