A fruity frog
15 minute Craft planner
Beware of allergies – make sure it is safe for the children to handle and taste the food used in this activity. Keep sharp knives out of children’s reach.
You will need:
A fruity frog template (see Printables)
Glue and brushes
How to prepare:
Print sufficient fruity frog templates for one per child. Make a sample ‘fruity frog’ so the children know what they are making.
How to make:
Clean the surfaces in your area and make sure the children have washed their hands.
1. Break the dried spaghetti into 3 cm pieces and cut the grapes in half. Place the spaghetti, grapes and raisins in separate bowls.
2. Encourage the children to colour in their template and stick it to their paper plate.
3. Only an adult should cut the mouth shape. To make the mouth cut a wedge shape out of the apple perpendicular to the apple core.
4. Push half a grape and a raisin onto a piece of spaghetti to make a frog eye. Repeat to make a second eye.
5. Push the end of the spaghetti pieces into the apple to secure the frog eyes in position.
6. Place the frog's head on the template to make a 3D frog.
Remind the children that if they want to eat their apple later they need to remove the spaghetti first.
