Method for Paper Cutting and Pasting of Leaping Frog


Draw a circle on a green card paper and cut out with the help of child friendly scissors.


Once done, with the help of pencil roughly draw out the shape shown below.


Darken the shape with a black marker, and continue to join the shape as shown below with the help of dotted lines.


Now start cutting the shape from both the sides until you reach the dotted lines. Once done, fold this line so that the body of the frog turns upwards and the hind legs of the frog come out from the backwards. You can also cut the whole portion if you like and stick the hind legs behind the back of the frog. Also stick the eyes on the top of the head.


Cut two front legs of the frog on the green card paper and stick them to the back of the body of the frog with the help of adhesives.


With the help of sketch pens or felt pens of your choice, add some features on the frog, like spots or zigzag lines. Kids can also make use of stickers or glitter if they wish to use to add decorative features to the leaping frog.


Now stick the frog in middle of  the white card paper. Do not apply glue to the whole body of the frog, just apply it in the center of it's back and stick it. This gives a 3-D effect. Now draw water, plants, stone or any other drawing of your choice to finish the landscape. Your leaping frog is ready.
