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!

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. You can find the editable tags HERE. Be sure to check out my “Back to School Cactus Craft for Kids” and check back tomorrow for another back-to-school craft using Fiskars Products!
