Welcome Spring with this Racing Frogs DIY
Spring is almost here! What better way to celebrate it than a fun and quick DIY your kids will love?
For this craft, you will only need paper, some markers, scissors, and glue.
The Jumping Frog
To make a cute jumping origami frog, you'll need a square piece of paper. We used a coloured A4, but you can use whatever thin paper you have handy. To make it into a square, take the corner of one of the short sides and fold it across to the other side.
Then cut or tear away the remaining strip, and voilà!
Once you're done folding, decorate it however you want and your frog is ready to jump!
Fold an A4 sheet of paper twice and, with the help of a bowl, trace a quarter of a circle. This will help you decide how big your flower is going to be.
With a pencil, draw the petals and cut the outline of the waterlily.
After opening it, put the bowl in the middle and trace the full circumference, then make small cuts until the line every two petals.
Fold them upwards, and glue the edges to the surrounding petals to make a landing plaform for the frogs. We used some of the leftover paper from the frog to decorate the waterlily. Be as creative as you want!
Fold another piece of paper like the one before, cut out a circle and make a slit on one side. Glue it to the bottom of the flower: the leaf is going to help the flower stay in place.
Now you’re ready to play!
How to play
Decide where your starting line is going to be and position your frogs. 3,2,1… Start! Press the bottom of the frog to make it jump. The first to make it to the flower wins.
