Froggy Fun


Read to children The Big Wide-Mouthed Frog by Ana Larranaga (Walker Ltd). Then give each child a paper plate. Invite children to paint one side green and one side red. When the paint is dry, fold the plate in half with the red on the inside (mouth). On the green top use a marker or crayon to add eyes and two dots for a nose. Help children glue a long strip of red construction paper inside the mouth (tongue). You can curl the tongue around a pencil if you wish. Read aloud the book a second time and have children use their puppets to "say" the words as you read.
