Project Details

  • Level:beginner
  • Time:2 hours

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include drying time for neither the paint nor the glue.
    Note: to ensure adequate drying time, the frog part of the project should be made several days in advance of when it is needed.
  • 2
    Open and flatten the cereal box.
  • 3
    Fold a rectangular piece of the cereal box in half so long ends meet to make a center line. Unfold. Fold the cardboard so short ends meet.
  • 4
    Cut the frog's mouth by cutting into the fold along the center line. Cut about 2/3 of the way to the edges of the folded cardboard. Unfold cardboard. Cut two small rectangles of recycled cardboard (for frog eyes) and fold them in half.
  • 5
    Spread newspaper over your workspace. Paint the larger cardboard Green. Paint the smaller rectangles to look like a frog's eyes. Let dry.
  • 6
    Mix a little Brown paint into some Green paint to create a darker Green. Make several dots on the frog with this new color. Let dry.
  • 7
    To assemble the frog, slightly bend the cardboard at the middle line so the mouth pops open. Staple the fold at each side of the cardboard, attaching a piece of ribbon at each staple location. Tie ribbons together to keep sides bent back so the frog stands. Glue a long piece of Red construction paper inside of the open mouth so that it extends in front of the frog. Glue the eyes to the frog. Let dry.
  • 8
    At the party, use markers to decorate coffee filter bugs. Fold filters into quarters, then hold markers in one spot until the dye seeps through the filter layers.
  • 9
    Gather the coffee filter in the middle and tie with a ribbon to make bugs to feed the frog. Take turns tossing the bugs onto the frog's tongue.
