Frog activities! To help us review our shapes, I came up with this fun shapes game.  I traced a set of shapes onto card stock paper.  Then cut circles from green foam to make our "lily pads." Finally, a blue sheet and a package of stretchy flying frogs and we were all set to play!  

There are so many variations to this game.   You could write the names of the shapes, use real world pictures of the shapes, or call out the names of the shapes.  

I held up shape cards and watched as the frog went flying onto the matching lily pad shape.

Froggy Felt Fun


Recently I decided to create my own felt cutouts for our felt board.  Now, I know many of you glue or staple your background felt, I prefer to pin mine so I can switch the background colors as often as we want.  I used a double-sided bulletin board (17 by 23 inches) I had purchased from Walmart for about $7. I cover the board with either flannel, fleece, or felt fabrics.  Flannel is the cheapest usually, but wrinkles very easy.  Felt Fabric is great but the color selection is limited. I just finished putting together a unit on Frogs for us and I wanted to make a felt board to go with the 5 Little Speckled Frogs nursery rhyme.  


Five Little Speckled Frogs (Hold five fingers (frogs) on top of your
other arm (log)
Sat on a speckled log
Eating the most delicious bugs. Yum! Yum!
One jumped into the pool (jump a finger off the log into the pool)
Where it was nice and cool
Now there are Four green speckled frogs (Hold up four fingers)

Here is our first felt board:












 I covered the board with a piece of blue felt fabric I purchased on sale for about $3 at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store.

 Frog Snack! To top off our Froggy Fun Week, we made these Frogs in the Pond Jello Cups!  This was a great following instructions activity.  First, we followed the directions on the back of the Berry Blue Jello box.  Next, when it was ready, we added the FROGS!  Finally, we added one raisin, the"fly" and a tongue (red gel icing).
