Yesterday, we had our 2nd theme day and it was so much fun! I decided that since the frog is our family mascot we should celebrate frogs! Here are the highlights...
We started the day with frog pancakes and milky pond water.
Next we began a paper mache craft project. This is a multi-day project and I will share the finished product when they are completed!
We took a break from the craft project to have a refreshing frog egg popsicle. The children loved them! I got the recipe here.
We read several books about frogs. Frogs by Gail Gibbons was exceptionally informative and taught us all about the different stages of frog growth and development.
For lunch we took a simple picnic (I used a cookie cutter to cut out the sandwiches) and hiked to a nearby creek.
After lunch we explored the creek looking for eggs, tadpoles and frogs. We were very fortunate in that we got to see tadpoles at all different stages and we even caught a frog!
Late in the afternoon the children and I gathered all of our froggy friends and had a teaparty! We enjoyed frog juice, chocolate frogs, gummi frogs, frog legs (sugar snap peas) and fly pie (this idea came from the creative Katherine Marie).
After dinner, the whole family participated in making t-shirts. These are not yet finished either but I will tell you that potatoes, celery and carrots were involved!
