Did you know in some cultures frogs are symbols of good luck? 🍀🐸
They believe that in Japan, and the Romans believed that to have a frog would bring good luck into the home. The Irish, on the other hand, consider the frog as a close relative of the leprechaun, and thus very capable of playing tricks on you.
Since next Tuesday is St. Patrick's Day, here's a last minute craft for you: Good-Luck Frog.
This is a very quick and easy craft for kids. Most of the items can be found at any dollar store, but I'll link them here if you'd rather shop online and get more supplies for a better price.
Here's what you'll need for this project:
Toilet paper tube;
Twine (any color);
You'll start by painting the toilet paper tube using a sponge or brush. Let it dry for a few minutes and add a second coat of paint if needed. When it's completely dry, paint the inside of the tube (just a small part in one of the sides) with red paint.
While you wait for it to dry, draw frog legs on your construction paper or cardstock, cut them and set them aside.
Glue the other side of the tube, making it a bit flat. You can paint a few spots on the frog's "back" using a different color if you want.
Cut a piece of twine and glue one of the tips to the inside of the tube where you painted in red. You can add a "bug" to the other tip to pretend the frog is eating the bug. Here I made a paper lady bug and glued to the twine.
Finally, glue the legs and add the googly eyes. Your frog is ready!
Hope you have fun doing this! If you share you project on social media don't forget to tag @mapetitealice.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
