  • Scrap paper to practice on
  • White construction paper
  • Pencil
  • Black marker
  • Crayons


  1. Practice drawing frogs. Only use a few minutes on this, individual design is key.
  2. With perspective in mind, draw three lines across the paper. The longest one near the bottom of the page and the shortest one about half way up. Draw a midsized line between them. The perspective rule being: the closer the object, the larger and nearer the bottom of the page. The farther away something is, the smaller it appears and closer to the top of the page.
  3. Draw three frogs on the lines. Show expressions by changing the curve of the mouth and direction of the eyes.
  4. Add lily pads, water, rocks, sun and waves.
  5. Trace over the pencil lines with black marker.
  6. Color the frogs using the primary colors: Color one blue, one red and one green. Color the sun yellow.
  7. Finish coloring the lily pads, water, rocks, sky, etc.
