Preschoolers will love helping to make their own frog craft. It is a good idea to pre cut all the cut out pieces for young children to making the creating process go more smoothly.

Some parts of this craft are a little fiddly so toddlers may struggle to get involved in making this craft themselves, but they will LOVE playing with the frog puppets if you make them for them and they can always help a little by adding glue or colouring the frogs in.
