These toilet paper frogs are very easy and lots of fun to make. Two frogs are made from just one toilet paper roll tube so you can make a whole frog family! They are then wrapped in paper (or you could paint) and then the final paper details added.
- Toilet paper roll tube
- Green paper
- Small piece of white paper
- Craft Glue
- Sticky Tape
- Gluestick (or just use the craft glue)
- Sharpie or another black pen
- Pen or pencil
- A guillotine is handy to use if you have one
Let’s Get Creating
Start by gathering all of the supplies listed under the Materials Needed list. Cut the toilet paper roll tube in half. If the toilet tube gets pressed in half use your fingers to mold it back into its original circle shape.
Place the cut toilet tube onto the green paper with the bottom edge of the tube at the bottom edge of the paper and draw a little dot at the top edge of the toilet paper tube. Fold along this line and cut with the scissors. This piece of paper will be used to wrap around the body of the toilet paper tube. On this piece of paper draw a big smile with the Sharpie or similar pen. Next, wrap this around the toilet paper tube and secure it in place with sticky tape.
Legs & Eyes
Cut out two long strips of green paper for the legs, two big green circles and two green front feet. From the small piece of white paper cut out two slightly smaller white circles. At the end of the two long strips of green paper cut three frog toes. On the white circles draw on the frog eye details. Stick the white eye circles onto the green circles then glue onto the frog toilet tube body.
Attach the legs. To do this fold the foot then bring the folded section together with the other end of the green paper length, hold this together then staple it onto the frog body at the foot fold. Repeat with the other frog leg. Apply a dot of craft glue to each front foot and glue it onto the frog toilet tube base.
Set your frog aside to dry. You can make a lilypad for your frog while you are waiting for the glue to dry. To do this cut a circle out of a piece of paper or cardstock. From this cut, a triangle shape with the point joining to the center of the lilypad. Place your frog on the lilypad for a super cute frog play scene.
The Little Green Frog
It turns out that there are a few different versions of this song. The below version is the way we have always sung it with our girls! If you are unfamiliar with the tune this is a fun version that you can watch/ listen to, although with slightly different words. We always sing this with hand actions. Hold up both hands closed and with each, Galloop, open and then close your hands. For the, la de da de da part hold your hands to your side and do a little wave motion. Such a fun song that preschoolers and toddlers are sure to love!
