Frog Hats: The Frog Olympics

So, as some of you may know, this term we have been working on our topic 'The Frog Olympics.' It's a great little story that ties in perfect with the Olympics taking place this Summer. 

As part of our topic, we have been doing some Olympic crafts but also some frog crafts. These frog hats were so much fun to make, and the children loved putting the tongues on and having the frogs stick them out!


What you will need: 

  • Green card
  • Pair of googley eyes
  • Red card/paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue - Pritt stick
  • Black marker
Now comes the tricky part, it's not too hard an activity but your children may need some support in putting it altogether. We started off by drawing a quick sketch out of a frog shape and following it around in a headband shape. 

If you're worried about trying to draw the shape of a frog, simply print out a template of a frog and use this to draw around onto the green card.

Next, cut out a strip of red card/paper and roll it up into a tight ball. 

Get the students to stick the eyes on top of the frog. Draw a mouth with the black marker pen and then stick on the tongue using the glue. 

Once all dry, simply measure the hat around the child's head, cut it to the correct length and then staple it together!
