Frogs make popular spring crafts but we put a spin to our little green creature and turned it into a Valentine’s Day heart frog craft. This cute frog of ours holds a big red heart between its four legs.
We started a heart animal series for Valentine’s Day with this heart bear, heart bunny and heart giraffe. The heart frog is a nice addition to the series.
The craft comes with an easy template to use in the classroom, in case you are a teacher, as well as a home version but you can also create your own template if you craft at home with your kids.
You can add the kids’ handprints instead of the frog’s legs for a more personal touch. Or have your child write a sweet short message on the heart and give the craft as a Valentine to grandma or another special person.

HOW TO MAKE A HEART frog CRAFT
The heart frog template comes with two versions:
1. home template – print the template, cut out the patterns and trace them on appropriate paper.
2. classroom template – print the pattern directly on colored paper and cut them out.
This way you can easily craft with just one or two kids as well as with a classroom full of students.
STEP BY STEP DIRECTIONS

Glue the eyes at the top of the head.

Glue the feet onto the heart, the front feet (small) go at the top of the heart and the back feet (big) go at the bottom of the bottom.
Use a black marker to draw the mouth.
Glue one white heart at one end of the mouth and the other heart at the other end.
