Life Cycle Of A Frog Craft
Who knew that the life cycle of a frog had so much going on? In our minds, we think tadpole and then frog and that’s really about it. But when it comes down to it, there’s also the eggs and the froglet that our children need to learn about as well.
The good news is that this craft teaches all of that and in a fun and edible way! If they’ve never had frog legs before, they’re about to now!

Directions to make this Life Cycle of a Frog
- Paint the rim around the plate green. Leave the center white. Let the paint dry.
- To make the tadpole, cut a gummy worm in half for the tail and stick the gumball on the end.
- To make the froglet, cut the front legs off a frog gummy and stick a half of gummy worm on the back end of it for the tail.
- Use a black marker and draw 2 lines on the white circle on the plate so it splits the plate into even fourths.
- In each section of the plate write one word each: Eggs, Tadpole, Froglet, Frog.
- In the Egg section, put a dollop of frosting on the plate, and stick a little pile of white candy all over it.
- In the Tadpole section, put a little dot of frosting and stick the tadpole on.
- In the froglet section, put a little dot of frosting and stick the froglet on.
