Celebration Frog

What You’ll Need:

  • Construction paper
  • A disposable drinking straw
  • Tape
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Markers
  • Tissue paper, printer paper and/or cardstock for your frog’s tongue


Colorful paper cutouts and green straw for frog science and math project
Step :1 Cut a circle out of a piece of green construction paper. Fold the circle in half and cut a small hole in the crease that fits your disposable drinking straw (see above photo).   

Step 2: Create eyes for your frog out of construction paper. We made ours by layering black and white circles onto two large green circles (see above photo). Glue the eyes on either side of the small hole in the crease of the circle. Draw on the rest of your frog’s face. We drew two lines for its nose and bright cheeks. 

Step 3: Cut a long rectangle from your tissue paper, printer paper and/or cardstock. Fold the paper in half vertically and insert your straw at one end. Tape the sides of the paper together, but try to leave room for air inside the paper rectangle (see above photo).

Step 4: Starting at the opposite end of the straw, roll the paper up into a tight coil (see above photo; we used another straw to help!). 

Step 5: Insert your straw through the hole you created in the circle with the “tongue” paper now sandwiched between the two halves of the circle (see above photo).

Step 6: Cut out frog legs and tape them to the backside of the bottom half of the circle.

Step 7: Blow through the straw to make your frog’s tongue move! Experiment using the different types of paper to see which one is easiest to move the frog’s tongue. Discuss why that might be.
