The Little Green Frog

Have I mentioned my new favorite blog lately?  I have?  Well, I’m mentioning it again.  No Time For Flashcards has tons of fabulous ideas and I used another one with Hailey.

Hailey absolutely loves the song Little Green Frog- here are the lyrics if you don’t know the song:

Mmm mmm went the little green frog one day
Mmm mmm went the little green frog
Mmm mmm went the little green frog one day
And they all went mmm mmm ahhh!!

But we all know frogs go ladedadeda
ladedadeda ladedadeda
We all know frogs go ladedadeda
ladedadeda ladedadeda
They don’t go mmm mmm ahh.

If I was brave like Allison over at No Time for Flashcards I’d sing it for you so you would know the tune.  But I am not that brave, so instead I’ll give you a link to her post.  If you need the tune you can get it here.

So, here is our frog that we made to go along with the song:

Here’s what you’ll need: construction paper- red, white and black, paper bag, green paint, paint brush, scissors and glue.

Cut one long strip of red paper and roll it up.  Then cut 2 medium sized black circles and 2 small white circles.

Paint the paper bag green.

Open the bag up and stand it up to dry.

Glue on the eyes and tongue after the paint is dry.

Hailey loved playing with the frog.  We used it as a puppet for singing Little Green Frog.  And then Hailey used it to carry her (play) cell phone around in for the rest of the day.  Oh well, she had fun with it.

    Very cute idea and looks like the children would have so much fun making it and then singing the song!
