Want to have some froggy fun for leap day?
1. First check here to see what the fuss is all about and if any zoos or aquariums near you are participating in a Leap Day celebration to promote amphibian conservation. More info here. Don't give up too easily. Our zoo wasn't listed, but is having a special day - and we'll be there!
2.Watch videos, send e-cards, take quizzes, and otherwise have a blast learning about frogs at National Geographic Kids. Creature Features: Red-Eyed Tree Frog and Poison Dart Frogs, the story of the giant fossil frog Beelzebufo, Fantastic Frogs quiz game, and articles Freaky Frogs, The Weird World of Frogs, and from National Geographic, Pesticides, Parasite May Cause Frog Deformities.
3. Do some fun, informative worksheets from TimeforKids: Which is Which?(frogs and toads),Meet a Frog, and Disappearing Frogs. Kidzone has a printable beginner book and lots of other neat worksheets, and kiddyhouse has an informative page as well.
4. Make some frog treats. Family Fun has a bunch to choose from : chocolate toads, froggy cupcakes, or sherbert the frog. Somewhere I have a gummy frog on a lilypad cupcake recipe, but I can't find it. It's really cute.
