Frog Footprints

4.5 based on 2 ratings

What You Need:

  • Sponge
  • Scissors
  • Washable paint, such as finger paint
  • Finger paint paper or newsprint paper
  • Plastic bowls – butter or margarine containers work great

What You Do:

  1. Cut out a frog footprint from the sponge.  Start with 3 webbed toes then make the rest of the stamp oval shaped.
  2. Put the paint into plastic bowls, one bowl for each color that your child will be using.
  3. Show your child how to use the sponge to stamp frog prints onto the paper.  Wash the sponge out to change colors. Alternately, if you want to make multiple stamps, cut one stamp for each color you will be using.
  4. Hang your artwork up to dry.

Did You Know?

  • Almost all frogs live partially on land and in the water. 
  • Frogs are able to absorb water and oxygen directly through their skin.  This makes them highly susceptible to pollution which may contribute to their declining numbers.
  • Baby frogs live in the water as tadpoles. 
  • These amphibians croak for different reasons but each species (kind) has a unique voice. Some frogs can be heard up to a mile away.
