MMMM AAAA went the little green frog…

Standard

Eggs, tadpoles, toads. It was a sensory time at Toddler Tuesday this week. We looked at living samples of each; and even played with some make believe eggs. These imaginary frog eggs, aka water beads, are so much fun and non-toxic, so if your little one sneaks one in his/her mouth; no worries. Check out the fun you can have with these even if you aren’t pretending they are frog eggs.

If you read her post, she even says that they are like frog eggs!

We made a really fun craft, albeit easier for the older TT’ers. Check out my climbing Leopard frog:

We read a very cute story by Karma Wilson. It was a very fun rhyming and counting story. I think the little ones learned what rhymes with ‘FROG’.

We sang songs, made new friends, played and had a great time; even said after the frog pee’d on me. That is what happens when you work with animals and children for a living~
