I always look for crafts that are easy to prep, kid-friendly, and fun, too! This frog craft for kids will have your students hopping in excitement. Let’s get started!

1. Cut Card Stock with Fiskars Punchers

Use your Circle Lever Punch (XXXX-Large) to punch out green circles and red circle. These will be used to make the mouth of the frog. Prepping for a craft is easy with Fiskars punching products. Cutting these circles was a breeze and did not take a lot of time (we all know that teachers are short on time).

2. Adhere Circles Together and Fold

Adhere the red and green circles on top of one another. Fold circle in half. I recommend folding immediately after gluing together with your favorite adhesive. Else the paper might bubble or not adhere well if you what to fold it after it dries.

3. Cut Out Eyes and Add Detail

Use the Round ’n Round Squeeze Punch (Medium) to create the eyes for your frog. Add black dots on the circles using a black Sharpie Marker.

4. Adhere Eyes and Add Details

Adhere the eyes of your frog to the face using your favorite adhesive. Add two small black dots using a Sharpie Marker.

5. Making the Tongue

Create the tongue for your frog by cutting a long strip from red card stock. Use a pencil, pen, or other writing utensil to wrap your red strip of paper around it. This will make your frog’s tongue curl. Adhere the tongue inside the frog’s mouth.

6. Print Your Editable Tags

Add the final touch by downloading, personalizing, and printing these editable “Our class is TOAD-ally AWESOME!” tags. You can find the editable tags HERE. Be sure to check out my cactus, flower, watermelon, and pineapple crafts for kids, too!

4. Add Detail with Adhesive

Using your favorite adhesive, add glue lines to your pineapple base. If you prefer something that is not as messy, have your students use glitter glue. This will save you a step when making this craft. If you’re feeling adventurous and glitter doesn’t bother you, keep reading!

The one thing that I love about this craft is how easy it is to prep with Fiskars circle punches. As teachers, we don’t have a lot of time in the beginning of the year to prep activities that take a long time. This is one easy craft that your students will absolutely love. Plus, it works on their fine motor skills, too!

turn your craft into a fun counting activity! Label each watermelon base with a number and have your students glue on the number of seeds that corresponds to the number on the watermelon!

1. Cut Outer Layer

Use your Circle Lever Punch (XXXX-Large) to punch out green circles for the base layer of your watermelon. This tool makes cutting circles so easy and it provides a clean cut every time!

2. Cut Inner Layer

Now it’s time to prep the inner layer of your watermelon kids craft! Use the Circle Lever Punch (XXX-Large) to punch out pink/red circles.

3. Adhere layers

Place the inner layer of your watermelon on the outer layer and adhere with your favorite adhesive.

4. Add Watermelon Seeds

Add watermelon seeds until you are happy with the finished product. I used the scraps from the Floral Frenzy Intricate Shape Punch (2″) as the seeds for this craft. If you are looking for much larger seeds, you can use the petals from the Petal by Petal Squeeze Punch (Large).

5. Cut Watermelon in Half

Use your Original Orange-handled Scissors™ (8″) or your Pointed-tip Kids Scissors (5″) to cut some of your watermelon pieces in half.

Flower Craft for Kids

As we begin another school year, it is important to remember what students know coming into school (sometimes more than others). In kindergarten, I often have to remind myself that many come in to kindergarten not able to line up, to sit in their seats, or to raise their hand when they have a question. However, I’m amazed at how much they blossom into confident, smart, and energetic students as they adjust to the routines and procedures of the classroom.

I am teaming up with Fiskars to provide you with five, back-to-school crafts throughout the week. This bright and colorful flower craft for kids is a great reminder of how much your students will blossom this year.

Please note that I am partnering with Fiskars and am compensated for my work. I received product free of charge, but all thoughts and opinions are 100% mine.

Soup cans, toilet paper rolls, and various containers of different sizes – these are all items that you can always find in a classroom. This craft is another craft that is perfect for utilizing these types of extra containers you might have.

This flower craft for kids is the perfect storage solution for all your crayons, markers, pens, and Fiskar scissors!

1. Fold and Cut Paper

Fold a piece of green construction paper or card stock in half. Use your Pointed-tip Kids Scissors (5″) or the Original Orange-handled Scissors™ (8″) scissors to make long cuts on the folded end of your paper. Get creative with your cuts by using Teresa Collins Paper Edgers (2-pack).

2. Adhere to Base and Arrange

After cutting a number of green stems for your flowers, glue them to a soup jar, toilet paper roll, or other container. I recommend using a hot glue gun to ensure that your paper sticks to the container. Layer the stems and “fan them out” to your liking.

3. Creating the Flowers!

Use the Floral Frenzy Intricate Shape Punch (2″) and the Pretty Scallops Lever Punch (XXXX-Large) to create your flower. Use a variety of colors of construction paper and/or card stock to make your flowers stand out. Use the Round ’n Round Squeeze Punch (Medium) to create the centers of your flowers.

4. Assembling Your Flowers

Assemble your flowers to your liking. Adhere each piece to one another using your favorite adhesive.

5. Assemble and Print Your Editable Tags

Adhere your flowers to the green stems using your favorite adhesive. Add the final touch by downloading, customizing, and printing these editable “We are Blooming in School!” tags.

Back to School Cactus Craft for Kids

 

Cactus themed classrooms are all the rage right now! This fun and engaging cactus craft for kids and editable tags is the perfect way to start your school year! I am teaming up with Fiskars to provide you with five, back-to-school crafts throughout the week. This easy cactus craft for kids is the perfect craft for the first day of school, and it will have your students saying, “It’s going to be a sharp year!”

Please note that I am partnering with Fiskars and am compensated for my work. I received product free of charge, but all thoughts and opinions are 100% mine.

We all know that teachers always have hundreds of toilet paper rolls stored away for that perfect craft or activity. Well, I’ve got the perfect craft for you! This activity is great for working on cutting with your students, too! My favorite part of this activity is the FREE editable tags and craft template. You can download these items HERE.

Use these cactus toilet paper rolls as a perfect solution for storing your flair pens or those extra “sharp” pencils!

1. Download FREE Printable and Cut

Download the free craft template and print on green and white card stock, construction paper, or printer paper. Use Fiskars scissors to cut out the template. I highly recommend the Pointed-tip Kids Scissors (5″) or the Original Orange-handled Scissors™ (8″) scissors. I love how safe, comfy, and durable these scissors are, and they make cutting easy, too!

2. Organize Pieces for Assembly

Every student will need a green cactus base, two cactus arms, and 2 eyes for this project. Be sure your students do not cut off the “glue” tabs indicated on the arms of the cactus. If you would prefer your students to color their own cactus, print the template out on white card stock. This is a great opportunity for students to be creative and make it their own.

3. Adhere Eyes and Add Detail!

Adhere the eyes to your cactus body. Using a fine point and ultra fine point Sharpie permanent marker, add detail to the body of your cactus. Be sure your students have flipped over the paper so that the “glue” side of the body is on the table and the green side is facing up! Let your students be creative and come up with their own facial expression for their cactus.

4. Wrap Around Toilet Paper Roll & Add Finishing Touches

Adhere the body of your cactus around the toilet paper roll using adhesive. If you are using card stock, I highly recommend using glue dots or hot glue to make sure your cactus body stays on the toilet paper roll. Fold the two tabs on the arms of your cactus and adhere to the body.

5. Print Your Editable Tags

Add the final touch to this fun, cactus craft by downloading, customizing, and printing these editable cactus tags. You can find the editable tags HERE. Be sure to check back tomorrow for another back-to-school craft using Fiskars Products!
