Spring Unit For Kids

Do you want to create an entire springtime unit around this paper bag frog craft? If so, keep reading below to see all of our ideas.

Reading aloud with your child provides them the opportunity to engage in a number of important developmental skills. Plus, it’s just plain fun! That’s exactly why we recommend starting out with books!

Below are some of our favorite springtime books for kids.

Too Many Carrots: This adorable book about a rabbit with way too many carrots will have your kids giggling! When he loads on too many that he can’t even go in his house, he’s on the hunt for somewhere to live. Read what happens as his friends try to help. This book is cute and has a great message of sharing!

Pete The Cat and the Cool Caterpillar: Pete’s new friend is a caterpillar! But when his best buddy goes missing, Pete has to find out what happened to him. He soon realizes he’s going to need a lot of patience to discover what exactly happened to his caterpillar!

I Don’t Want To Be A Frog: Little frog wants to be anything but, you guessed it, a frog. He tries his hand at being a cat, rabbit, pig, and owl, but he just can’t manage to be like them. All along the way, his dad encourages him to just be a frog, but it’s not until he has a surprise run-in with a wolf that he rethinks what it means to be a frog. This book is an excellent story that teaches kids about self-acceptance and what it means to be true to yourself. It’s also beautifully illustrated and captures the feeling of the characters perfectly.

Crafting with young children supports their development in many ways! Craft time builds self-esteem, fosters creativity, and teaches patience. Crafting can also help your child grow socially, emotionally, intellectually, and physically, so why not add in some more fun crafts projects?!

Here are some of our favorites that go along with spring:

Introduce color by numbers to your little one with these spring color by number printables. This activity will help them learn their colors, while also improving fine motor skills. It’s a win-win for both you and your kiddo!

Preschoolers love exploring the world! With that in mind, we created these preschool bug activities that can be used for kids aged 3-5 years old. It includes handwriting practice sheets, emotion cards, patterns, and more!

Make learning fun with these bug color by number printables. These are perfect for preschoolers and kindergartners to learn their colors, numbers, and more! This is a great activity to do at home or in the classroom. Plus teachers can use this as an assessment tool since it helps kids develop hand-eye coordination while highlighting important skills like counting and recognizing letters of the alphabet.

If your child loves sensory play check out this spring play dough kit or this bug sensory bin.

Let kids explore real bugs that have been preserved with this cool bug collection. Or learn from a living example when kids grow their own butterflies!

Paper Bag Frog Puppet

[manualidad en español]

frog puppetcontributed by Leanne Guenther

We had loads of fun playing with this frog puppet.  I must admit that I hogged him quite a bit.  You'd be amazed at how much better children listen when the frog tells them to clean up a mess than when mommy asks them to. *grin*

Materials:

  • a paper lunch bag
  • a printer and paper 
  • green paint or green construction paper
  • scissors,
  • glue and/or tape
  • something to color with

Get Familiar with Your Paper Bag:

  • We're going to hop on through this slowly, so bear with me.  Look at your paper bag.
  • It should be closed and flat like a piece of paper.  Just like when they are brand new.
  • On one side, it's all smooth.  This will be the BACK of your frog
    • It's important that all the kids get the back and front straight at the beginning!
  • On the other side there's a flippy tab (which is typically the bottom of the bag when you're carrying your lunch around...)
    • This flippy tab will be the frog's HEAD.
  • Lift the flippy tab up a bit.  Underneath of the FLAP will be the frog's mouth,
    • When the child put's her hand in the bag, she'll be able to make the puppet talk.
  • Look at the rest of the front of the bag.  (The 3/4 or so of the bag below the part with the flippy tab)  This will be the BODY.
  • Look at the sides of the bag.  There should be a SIDE FLAP of paper. 
    • We'll be slipping the arms into this flap.
    • If the kids goof and glue the arms onto the front or back of the bag, it isn't a big deal.
  • OK, now that we're comfy with our bags, let's craft (you can always peek at the photo above if you get confused)!

Putting the Frog Puppet Together:

  • Paint the front of your paper bag green (we don't have many paints in our house -- just red, yellow, blue, black and white.  We mix all of our own colors which is loads of fun for the girls).  Set aside to dry.

    OR

    As an alternative to painting:  trace the body of the paper bag and the head of the paper bag onto green construction paper.  Cut it out and glue it to the bag.
  • Print the template pieces:
    • Color the largest circles and arms green (or whatever color your frog is going to be.
    • Color the long rectangle (ish) piece red (FRONT AND BACK!).
    • Color the smallest circles black.
    • Cut out the pieces.
  • Put one of the green circles in front of you.  Glue the medium sized (white circle) onto it.  Glue the small (black) circle onto that.  Repeat with the other set of circles.  Now you have two eyes!
  • Take the red long rectangle and wrap it around a pencil to give it a curl.  This will be the tongue.
  • By this time, your bag should be dry.
  • Glue the eyes onto the top of the HEAD.  You can see from the photo above that the eyes stick up over the top of the head.
  • Optional:  draw two tiny black lines (nostrils) onto the head.
  • Lift the FLAP and glue the tongue underneath.
  • Glue the arms into the SIDE FLAP.  When you do this, glue or tape them onto the top of the flap not the bottom.  That way when you're using the puppet, it's arms will reach forward in a hugging motion instead of bending way backwards.  Now, I give these instructions to make sure I've given you as much info as I can -- use your judgement when balancing whether to share the directions with the kids or let them get creative on their own.
  • Optional:  You can personalize your basic frog puppet in a lot of ways.  By this point the Age 2 thru 4 group will be happy (going further may make the project too time consuming for their young attention spans), but older children might like to extend the craft.  Here are just a few ideas for them:
    • Put a construction paper or gift wrap bowtie on the frog.
    • Draw marker or paint speckles/warts/dots on your frog's body.
    • Take a small black pom pom.  Attach some wax paper wings and small googly eyes to make a fly.  Glue it to the frog's tongue.
    • Glue something into the frog's hand

      OR

      Put a small piece of velcro on the frog's hand.  Put Velcro on numerous objects.  That allows you to change the frog's "props" during a puppet show.  If you chose to do this, you'll want to back the frog's arm with a thin piece of cardboard (old cereal box) so it doesn't flop around.
    • Glue some construction paper froggy feet to the bottom of the bag.

frog puppetfrog puppetCut feet in one of the shapes to the right out of green construction paper.  Bend the tabs at the top of the feet and glue or tape the tabs onto the INSIDE of the paper bag.  That will give the feet a 3D floppy feel.

DIY with RY: Paper Bag Frog Puppet 🐸

One of my daughter’s favorite books right now is Five Green and Speckled Frogs. She loves singing the song over and over and I thought it would be fun to make an adorable Paper Bag Frog Puppet with her so she can enjoy singing the song with her cute puppet.

We have included a pattern to make this frog craft even more simple for you and your little ones to make.

[This craft was originally posted on June 3, 2015. It has been updated to include a video tutorial, a more in-depth tutorial with new photos, and an improved craft template.]

How to Make a Paper Bag Frog Puppet

After preschoolers are finished making their paper bag frog puppets they are going to have so much fun playing with them and making them “ribbit, ribbit” all around the house or classroom.

Read our simple step-by-step instructions below for how to make this fun paper bag puppet. You will also want to make sure you watch our easy video tutorial inside this post before you get started.

Supplies needed for your frog craft

  • frog craft template <—- Get the Pattern Here
  • paper lunch sack
  • green paint
  • pink paint
  • paintbrush
  • cardstock paper (green, white, black and red)
  • scissors
  • glue stick
  • pencil

Instructions for making the paper bag puppet

1. Start by painting the front of your paper bag with your green paint. After it has dried, paint the section underneath the flap of the bag with pink paint for the frog mouth. Set aside the paper bag to dry completely.

2. Print out the paper bag frog pattern. The first page of the template can easily be printed out on green cardstock paper. The second page of the template has a mixture of pieces. You can color the pieces with crayons or marker, or cut them out and use them as a template to trace the pieces on colored cardstock paper. Cut out each of the pieces of the template.

An alternative to using the circle pieces of the template is to make them with circle punches. Use a 2-inch circle punch to cut out two white circles and one green circle. Cut the green circle in half to make eyelids. Then use a 1-inch circle punch to cut out 2 black circles for pupils and several light green circles to make your frog speckles.

3. Once the paint on your paper bag has dried, glue each of the arms and legs in the side flap of the paper bag. You’ll want to put glue on the front of the pieces when you slide them in so they attach to the front flap part of the bag.

4. Glue the black pupil circles on the large white circles to make eyes. Then glue the large green half circles at the top of each of the eyes for eyelids. Add glue on the back of each of the eyes and attach them at the top of the paper bag, hanging off the top of the bag a little.

5. Glue your light green circles all over your paper bag.

Related: Paper Bag Giraffe Puppet

6. Curl your red strip of paper around a pencil or your finger tightly to curl it. Then glue it under the front flap of the puppet inside the frog mouth.

To play with your paper bag puppet, children place their hand inside the paper bag with their finger curled inside the top flap of the paper bag. Open and close your finger to watch as the frog mouth opens and closes.

He’s a pretty cute little fella. My daughter likes to uncurl his tongue, pretend he catches a fly and then watch it curl back up quickly.

We’ve also been using it to reenact our Five Green and Speckled Frogs Book while we read it at bedtime.

Frog Paper Bag Puppet Craft

I think spring is such a fun time for craft projects and learning activities with kids, don’t you? 

It’s a great time for anything related to weather, plants, and animals. 

These paper frog puppets provide children a fun way to practice scissor skills if you have them cut out the pieces. 

They will also use their fine motor skills gluing it together.

Plus, it encourages creative play when they are finished. Either way this is a great activity for at home or in the classroom!

To make this project as simple as possible, I’m providing template files that you can use to print and cut out yourself or use a cutting machine (I love my mint Cricut Explore Air 2) to save a step.

*These files are for personal use and your personal classroom use only.

If you don’t have a Cricut machine and ONLY want to use the printable template and cut the pieces out yourself, you can download the Frog Puppet PDF here. With this you can print in color and cut out the pieces or use it to trace and cut out pieces from construction paper.

Otherwise you may download the frog puppet template zip files. This includes the PDF as well as a color PNG and black and white SVG files. The PNG is great for using the Cricut’s print then cut feature.

The PNG and SVG files also allow you to use your cutting machine to cut out the shapes on different colors of cardstock paper.

How to Make a Paper Bag Frog Puppet

If not using a cutting machine, print a copy of the PDF template. Then cut out the pieces for the frog’s face or trace on cardstock or construction paper before cutting.

You can use a brown paper lunch bag or a green one. You could also have the kids color brown paper bags with a green crayon.

Have the children glue the pieces together. Start with the large round circle for the frog’s head and glue it to the bottom of the bag. 

Then glue the green ovals at the top of the head and glue the eyes onto the green ovals.

Add the small pink circles for cheeks – you can skip this if you want, but I think they look so cute!

Wrap the red strip around a pencil to curl the tongue and glue it under the bottom of the head.

Using a Cricut:

If you have another machine, please add any helpful tips you have in the comment section below.

Print Then Cut Directions:

For print then cut, start by uploading the frog puppet PNG file to Cricut Design Space and select “simple.”

  5. Click to make it. You will be prompted to print it out before loading it onto a mat and into your machine. I left the bleed on.
  6. After it’s done cutting, carefully remove from the mat. Now the pieces are ready to be assembled. 

Cutting Only:

The SVG files are in black and white. You will need to resize them until an eye is about 1.5 inches wide. If you are using these to cut on separate mats/color papers (instead of printing), you will need to ungroup them first. 

Notes

These files are for personal use and your personal classroom use only.

Activity time provided is an estimate and may vary.

Now discussing:

I was always ashamed of this desire and never told anyone about it. I just had regular healthy sex with guys and all the time I was thinking how not to blurt out something in a fit of. Passion.
