DID YOU KNOW:
When a frog swallows a meal, his bulgy eyeballs will close and go down into his head! This is because the eyeballs apply pressure and actually push a frog’s meal down his throat. “YUM”
Song About Frogs
A fun song to teach children facts about frogs. They will learn about the environment that frogs live in, what they eat, their appearance, and more. The extremely smart Owlton W. Hootley sings this song.
In the album version, before Owlton begins singing he talks with Billy Gorilly about wanting to be “COOL”. Billy helps him understand that it’s OK to be smart and “kind of nerdy”.
Hop and Jump: This is a great way for the kids to burn off a little energy.
Have the children hop straight up into the air every time they hear “HOP” or “JUMP” while listening to the HOPPING TOADS AND JUMPING FROGS song. This activity is sure to get a few giggles, gets the kids moving, and helps them listen for key words.
Musical Lily Pads: Create lily pads for the kids to sit on. Draw a lily pad on green construction paper, cutout and laminate if desired. Place on floor so the kids can sit on them. Now you can play musical lily pads. (play just like musical chairs).
