Frogs are fabulous! They are intriguing and irresistible to many young children. I love using frogs to teach any subject and concept. I'm sharing some of my favorite activities using these playful amphibians and sharing a new froggy freebie! I created this interactive storybook and counting mat to go along with the song "Five Little Speckled Frogs". It's fun to use and easy to make AND it's free! You can pick up your free copy here.
I had some adorable speckled frog squirters that were just dying to be used, so I decided to make a prop for the 5 Little Speckled Frogs song. I hot glued magnets to the bottom and added them to my cardboard log (the insert that comes with my printer ink). See picture directions on making your own frogs on a log here.
The magnetic frogs on a log are great to use for so many things. You can use them to demonstrate positional words (slap some magnets to the sides of the log and the frog will hang out on the side of the log, too). Use them for counting, singing, telling stories, and so much more. You can also use them while singing the song, "Five Little Speckled Frogs".
