This little frog is all ready to deliver a message and a candy bar.Â There is a space between the front and the back of the frog where a candy bar can be placed.Â The front insert on the frog is left blank on the pattern so you can write any message you want.Â Iâ€™ve put a Valentineâ€™s message on the sample, but this little frog could also be used as a place card and favor holder.Â A message like, â€œ Hoppinâ€™ you have a Happy Birthday,â€ Â or â€œIâ€™m hoppinâ€™ mad I forgot your birthday,â€Â are just a couple of other possibilities.
- White cardstock
- Frog (Pattern)
- Colored markers or crayons
- Glue stick
1.Â Â Â Â Â Â Print the pattern on the white cardstock.Â Color all the pieces.
2.Â Â Â Â Â Â Fold at the fold lines—run the edge of a ruler over each fold to give a good crease.
3.Â Â Â Â Â Â Color the bottom lip of the frog which was formed by the fold.Â Â Â Glue the tongue to this bottom lip.
4.Â Â Â Â Â Â Write a message on the blank and glue it to the front of the frog.
5.Â Â Â Â Â Â Make the frog stand and then glue the top mouth to the bottom lip—-this can be adjusted so the frog will stand.
6.Â Â Â Â Â Â Glue the eyes to the frog face.
7.Â Â Â Â Â Â Place a candy bar in the space between the front and the back of the frog.Â Any small treat put in a snack Baggie could be fitted in the space.
