        Is It Easy Being Green?

        Has your child ever seen a frog in a pond, an aquarium, or a book? What did the frog look like? What does a frog do? What sounds does a frog make? Explain to your child that a frog is an amphibian. An amphibian is an animal that can live in the water and on land.

        Step 1: Print It

        Print out the Jumping Fold-a-Frog Sheet.

        Step 2: Things You'll Need

        Collect the items from the materials list.
        Little Hands Tip: Jump like a frog across the room.

        Color the Jumping Fold-a-Frog Sheet. Cut out the entire rectangle pattern along the solid lines.

        Step 4: Fold It

        Fold along line #1 to make a crease. The printed line should be on the outside of the fold, not tucked inside. Then, unfold and lay flat. Fold along line #2 to make a crease. The printed line should be on the outside of the fold, not tucked inside.Then, unfold and lay flat.

        Step 5: Tuck It

        Tuck in both area 3s as you fold the top back. Make the two smiley faces touch each other, and the two stars touch each other.

        Fold the left corner #4 up to the center. Make the hearts touch each other.

        Step 7: Fold It

        Fold the right corner #5 up to the center. Make the stick figures touch each other.

        Step 8: Tuck It

        Fold along the dotted line #6 and tuck the flap under. The printed dotted line will be on the outside of the fold. Now fold along the dotted line #7 and tuck the flap under. The printed dotted line will be on the outside of the fold. Same goes for this one.

        Step 9: Fold Again

        Fold along the dotted line and tuck the flap under. The printed dotted line will be on the outside of the fold.

        Step 10: And Fold Again

        Fold up along the dotted line. The printed dotted line will be on the inside of the fold.

        Step 11: Get Jumping!

        Make the frog jump by pushing down on the back end.
