Have you heard the little children's counting song, "Five Green and Speckled Frogs?"

It's a favourite in my house and was always a bit hit while I taught preschool. To help bring the little song to life I made 5 magnetic felt frogs and found a "speckled log" in the park for them to sit on. Now your little one can help you sing the song using her props.

Here's the Low Down

1. Cut out ten pieces of green felt in a froggy shape.

2. Decorate the front side however you wish adding googly eyes and speckly skin. For all my felt stories I use fabric paint.
3. Next your going to glue the two felt pieces together with cotton balls and a magnet on the back of the frog INSIDE the felt.
Do this for all five frogs.

4. Take your clean"frog log" and hot glue five magnets to it.
***** Remember that magnets either attract to one another or push away so make sure that all frogs will have a place to sit on the log before you glue the magnets on. I learned this the hard way once....gulp.*****
5. Cut out a piece of blue felt in the shape of a pond for the frogs to jump into....
 For those who don't know the
Five Green and Speckled Frog song, here it is....

"Five green and speckled frogs sat on a speckled log,
eating some most delicious bugs....yum, yum!

One jumped into the pool where it was nice and cool,
Now there are four green speckled frogs....glub, glub"!

Continue to count down until all the frogs are in the pond....


  1. nice! perfect for baby's room, I gonna need some materials and of course the time to do it.

  2. This is great! My daughter loves frogs and that song. I'll be trying to make this sometime soon. I just pinned it. :)
