This week we learned all about little green hoppy friends with our Frog themed baby bins. We had so much fun exploring sensory bins and creating crafts this week as we learned about froggies!
Here is a look at our 6 animal themed baby bins:
Here are the details for each of our activities:
Frog Theme Book:
For this week’s book I chose the I Love Frogs Rookie Toddler book. This book has awesome pictures and simple information. All of the board books in this series are perfect for introducing more nonfiction to little readers.
Froggy Sensory Bin:
Rainbow Frog Sort:
Pond Sponge Painting:
For our second froggy craft we created a sponge paint pond. First Aubrey used a sponge brush to stamp blue paint all over the page. Then after we let that dry, she glued lily pads onto her pond. Finally she used a sponge that I cut into a frog print shape to stamp green footprints all over her page.
Jell-O Frog Excavation:
To prepare this fun sensory activity, I started by making 2 large packages of blue Jell-O according to the package directions. Then before placing in the refrigerator to set, I added plastic frogs. We waited for the Jell-O to set overnight. Then Aubrey used spoons, scoops, and tools to rescue the frogs from the sticky pond.
Tissue Plate Frog Craft:
Our last craft this week was a tissue paper plate frog. I watered down glue so that it was easily spreadable. Aubrey used a foam brush to paint a paper plate with glue and added green tissue paper squares. Then she painted over the squares with more watered down glue. And to finish off the face she glued out paper shapes to the face.
