Ok, you caught us, they're frogs! We were inspired by Leap Day, and wanted to bring you all an easy, fun activity to do with mentees of all ages on any day of the year. Our friends at www.easypeasyandfun.com teach us how to make the cute little Origami Frogs pictured above. When you and your mentee are done, consider decorating your frogs and having a race across the table!
What You'll Need:
A square sheet of paper
Red Paper to Make a Tongue
Pencils, Crayons, Colored Pencils, or Markers for Decorating
Grab the spot that’s marked with the red spot on the image above and fold it outwards. Do the same with the other side. Flip it over – it’s slowly starting to look like a frog isn’t it?
Last part is a bit tricky but if you want to make your frog jump it’s a must. You’ll have to fold the back of the frog twice on places indicated with the blue and red line.
Position the frog as it’s shown on the 4th image (above) and fold it backwards along the red line (you can help yourself with the ruler or a credit card etc…). It will now look like the image number 4 (and 5 if you flip it). Now fold the frog along the blue line (fold it forwards).
