Toilet Paper Roll Frog

Hey there, so Echo and I were looking for something fun to do today when I ran across these cute frogs Here. It is such a fun craft to do with kids, My kids always love the crafts that are also toys.

Materials:

  • Toilet paper roll
  • String
  • Paint
  • Glue (I used hot glue but for kids doing it alone they can use school glue)
  • Staples or again hot glue for the bottom
  • Googly eyes or paint for the eyes
  • Crayons or something to color the bug
  • Cardboard for the bug
  • Construction paper for the legs




Gather your materials. Don’t mind our mess, this is where we do most of our messy projects.

Paint the outside green and the inside red.

Let dry. You can cut out 4 legs for each frog while you wait. I used construction paper but you can use cardboard and paint them also.

Glue on your legs and let that dry.

Tie a knot at both ends of your rope put one end in the bottom end of your frog.

Echo loves it and has been trying for so long to get the bug in the frogs mouth. This is so great for hand eye coordination too.

She said “OK mom, this time I will get it”. She still didn’t get it that time but she was having fun trying.

    Hi, I love this craft idea! And thanks God I have kept so many toilet rolls. I just have one question, how long should the string be? I don’t know if wool would work :c

    Thank you so much. I hope you can answer my doubts.

      Depending on the child you are making it for I would make it at at least 12 inches. I made it longer at first for my 4 year old and she had a tough time so I shortened it and she was able to get it. She loved playing with that.
