Summer Pond- Frog, Frog's Life Cycle and Lily- Part IV

Here is our final project in our Summer Pond. Colton made a frog, the frog's life cycle and a lily flower.

Lily-We used construction paper, scissors and coffee filter .
Frog- Paper plate, green paint, stapler, glue, construction paper and wiggly eyes.
Life Cycle- Worksheet
Colton colored the life cycle and and cut it out. He glued it to green construction paper cut like a lily pad.
To make the lily flower, keep folding the coffee filter in half until it is about 1/2 inch wide. Cut a triangle tip on the end. Then open up.

To make the frog:
1. Paint paper plate green. Allow to dry.
2. Cut out tongue and legs.
3. Fold late in half and staple around edge. I added the tongue while stapling.
4. Glue on legs and eyes.

This is such a fabulous idea! We have a nearby nature center that does activities for kids centered around pond life, and this would be a great activity to incorporate with that. Thanks!
