Craft Project for My Little Heroes

I found this idea over the Internet while browsing for ideas to fill our weekend. I'm planning to sit down with my heroes and do it. Hopefully, I'll have the time to do so this weekend. Ooops, I forgot...I'll have classes this weekend and it's gonna be the Accounting Paper.

Well, if I survive this weekend (I hope I will), I'll try to squeeze in some time to work on this craft project with my little heroes. I'll put the result of this 'mission' on this blog once it has materialised. (Errr...I am not giving myself any deadline for this 'mission') hehehe...

For those of you who are running out of ideas on how to entertain your kids, check this out:

He may not be a prince, but this paper puppet is certainly charming.

What you need:
- dessert paper plate, green paint, utility knife, scissors, construction paper

1. First, paint the dessert paper plates with green paint. When it's thoroughly dry, fold the plate in half and use a utility knife (parents only) to make a 1-inch slit (for the frog's tongue) in the center of the fold.

2. Create a fingerhold on the underside of the body using a 2-by-3-inch piece of green construction paper.

3. Center it on the bottom of the folded plate and tape the shorter edges in place.

4. For eyes, cut out a pair of 1-by-2-inch green rectangles and round the upper edges.

5. Fold each rectangle in half and glue the lower portion to the top of the body.

6. Glue on white and black paper circles, as shown.

7. Cut frog legs out of construction paper, a shorter set for the front and a long, bent pair for the back.

8.Tape the tops of the legs to the underside of the body.

9.Cut out a 3/4-by-7-inch tongue from red construction paper. Round one end and slip it through the slit. To wag the frog's tongue, jiggle the straight end.

** Happy trying**

p/s: Asmida, would you like to try this out with Alin, Amri & Shakir? :))
