Turn a green paper bag into a fun frog with this paper bag frog puppet craft. Add some construction paper arms and legs, giant googly eyes and a curled, long paper tongue and you have a cute frog craft that any child will love to play with.

Our sun catcher turtle craft is a simple craft to put together that looks amazing when complete and is so much fun to make. Using tissue paper and contact paper gives the turtle’s shell a “stained glass” effect, making it look great when hung on a window. Best of all there is no right or wrong way to do this craft! Your kids get to just stick on the tissue paper squares wherever and however they would like; making it ideal for even young toddlers while older children can focus on a pattern.


Dragonfly Craft dragonfly craft
