Frog Games for Early Childhood:
Frog Facts Board Game- Children use their knowledge of frogs to answer questions in this simple to make board game:
Leap Frog- This game can take on many versions. In its simplest form, have the children squat down and leap like a frog. Don’t forget to have them say, “ribbit” each time they jump! As an added interest/challenge, tape lilly pads made from green construction paper to the floor and have students try to leap from pad to pad. Letters or numbers can be added to the pads so children are encouraged to find the sequence.
Frog Puzzles- Find pictures in magazines of frogs (National Geographic, Time for Kids, or use Google images). Glue each picture on card stock/tag board. Once dry, cut into puzzle pieces appropriate for your age level.
Catch That Bug- Using party blowers, attach a small amount of Velcro to the end of each blower. Attach the opposing side of the Velcro to several small, plastic bugs (can purchase at Dollar Store, Big Lots, etc.). When students blow the party favor, they can try to catch the bugs.
