You Will Need
- green paper
- yellow paper
- 2 paper plates
- masking tape
- PVA glue
- 1 stapler
- 1 marker pen
Cut one of the plates in half, then into quarters. Attach one wedge of the cut up plate to either side of your second plate with masking tape, then round off the edges with your scissors. Round off the other two quarters of the first plate and stick them to the top of the other plate with masking tape.
Paint PVA mixed with water onto the mask, then stick on torn up pieces of plain paper. Cover the eyes with yellow paper. Cut away any excess paper when the frog is dry.
Draw on a big mouth and eyes with the black marker pen; then draw on and cut out two big nostrils, which will line up with your own eyes.
Staple each end of the string next to each eye, then tie a knot in the string so the mask stays attached to your head. Tape over the staples with masking tape if they feel uncomfortable.
