Book Craft: Finklehopper Frog

This easy craft is perfect for younger Girl Scouts (or younger siblings) and is a great follow-up to “Finklehopper Frog” by Irene Livingston.


Materials Needed:

  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • White paper or colored construction paper
  • Markers/Crayons

Draw your frog on either white paper or construction paper.

Cut your frog out.  You can color your frog first if you want or wait until the next step.

Once you cut your frog out, glue it to a piece of construction paper as a background. If you did not color it before cutting it out, color your frog now. What will your frog’s jogging suit look like?

Draw some friends that can go jogging with your frog on the background. Now, give them some color.  Add a dog, mouse, maybe a rabbit?

Add details. For instance, will you add a tree? Maybe some grass? Be creative and have fun!

We want to hear how your girl is using her Girl Scout skills by taking initiative, caring for the community, and Girl Scouting at home. She was at the can send in her story here.
