Party Blower Frog: The Frog Olympics

Our theme of 'The Frog Olympics' this term has been so much fun! The kids have had a ball taking part in all the different activities themed around the frogs and their Olympics as well as our Summer Olympics.

One of their favourite crafts was these frog party blowers. They were so much fun to make - albeit a bit tricky, they were definitely worth it for how much the children loved wearing them as masks!

What you will need: 
  • Paper plate
  • Green paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Glue - Pritt Stick
  • Black marker pen
  • Party blower
  • Pair of googly eyes
  • Scissors
First, fold your paper plate in half. Once folded, open it back up full so that you can see the crease of the halfway mark. 

Next, paint the paper plate green, you can do this in lots of different ways, we usually mix up different shades of green paint for students to paint with.

Once painted, leave to dry.

Once dry, fold the paper plate in half once more to make the folded crease more apparent, open the plate full again and lay flat. Just above the halfway crease draw two circles - these will be the frogs eyes. Simply cut out around the eyes - do not cut off any of the plate, just cut out above/around the eyes so that they will stick out.

Fold the plate in half again, once folded this time, the eyes should stick up. 

Stick on the two googly eyes.

Use a black marker pen to draw a mouth. 

Using scissors, carefully make a small hole in the mouth then push through the party blower. 

Once completed, you can either leave standing (the plate folded in half will help to keep it up) or use as a mask (this was what our kiddos loved doing!)
