Playgroup Frog Fun!

Guest Author - Alissa Moy

Celebrate frogs with your preschool playgroup! Plan a fun and educational cooperative event, filled with learning, crafts, games and more. Here are a few ideas for frogtastic excitement:

Write a Poem- In honor of Poetry month (April) have the children complete the easy poem about frogs. This pdf, free from Carson Dellosa, is a link at the bottom of the page. The great thing about this poetry form is that is is specifically geared for the preschool learner, enabling them to participate in a creative activity. Once the children write their poems offer them an opportunity to share them with the group.

Lapbook- Lapbooks, while often done by homeschool students, are appealing for children of the preschool age. The website Homeschool Share offers a comprehensive and awesome variety of ideas and printables for a frog lapbook. At their website (at the end of this article) you will find printable worksheets for the letter F, frog coloring sheets, information, foldable activities and much more.

Craft a frog puppet- DLTK-Kids has a fantastic array of frog crafts just for the preschool crowd. The assortment of frog puppet crafts are especially cute. Check out their web page link at the end of this article.

Play a Game- The preschool crew will enjoy a rousing game of "Frog-Frog-Tadpole". Similar to "Duck-Duck-Goose" the children play the game exactly like the traditional chasing game. However, Once tagged, the "tadpole" needs to hop and run to catch the next frog!

Create a Froggy Snack Mix- Assemble a snack buffet, offering the children a chance to create their own froggy snack mix. Be sure to have moms helping children use spoons only to pick up their snack mix ingredients. Here are some neat choices for the snack buffet:
1. green and brown mnm's
2. gummy insects or gummy bugs
3. raisins (flies)
4. goldfish crackers
5. pretzel sticks (logs in pond)
6. gummy worms

However you choose to plan your frog themed co-op, enjoy the experience when your preschooler's pals hop on over!
