5 little speckled frogs

This week I am working on the song five little speckled frogs.  I made the following prop to use in my groups as it is a really good one which they can use with their parents / carers to sing with, develop language and listening skills as well as to develop their counting skills going down from five to none.

Please note this is not my idea but one a colleague shared with me.

You will need:

  • A kitchen roll tube
  • Brown fabric to cover the log
  • A glue gun
  • Laminating pouches
  • Laminator
  • Frog template - small enough that they fit onto the log
  • Two lilly pad images for the ends of the log that will be glued on
When laminating the frogs and cutting them out make sure that you cut a long strip of the laminated plastic so it fits around the log and can be stapled to the frogs body, making sure you leave enough room for each individual frog to be able to be pushed backwards or forwards off the log.

This song prop has proved to be a big hit.
