This preschool frog tongue craft is so much fun to make together. My daughter and I were reading about frogs and she thought the idea of their sticky tongue was really funny.  She ran and found a blow out party favor and showed me how the frog’s tongue pops out to catch flies.  And so this silly frog craft was born! Use our fun frog craft at home or in the classroom.

Supplies Needed for Frog Tongue Craft

supplies needed for preschool frog tongue craft: party blowers, marker, scissors, green constructioon paper, velcro dots and gray felt
  • green cardstock or construction paper
  • felt
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • marker
  • party blow outs*
  • velcro pieces

*To make the fun little sticky tongue, we used a basic party blower.  I was happy when I stumbled upon these perfectly colored red ones at the dollar store!  Rachel unrolled it and put a few pieces on the underside of the end of the blow out.  The velcro will “catch” the flies we will make later.

Make a Sticky Tongue Frog Craft

Step 1

To make a frog face to go with the tongue, draw a circle on the green paper.  You can freehand this or maybe let your child trace a plate to draw their own circle.  Then cut out the circle.

Step 2

Next, fold the circle in half.  Then, on the folded side, cut a “V” notch in the center of the fold.

When you open the frog’s face, there will now be an “X” in the back of the mouth.  Just slide the party blow out into the hole and you have a basic frog and tongue.

This is how your frog will catch flies

Add velcro dots to the back of the party blower tongue.

Step 4

Add some eyes, color the inside of the mouth….whatever your child wants to do to personalize their frog.

Step 5

Finally, use the black marker to draw some little flies on the piece of felt.  Cut them out and place them around on the table. As your child blows out the party favor, the velcro pieces on the end of it will grab the fly and bring it back into the froggie’s mouth!
