Making a Frog Bank

ages 3-6


Supplies

A small box, such as a pound sugar box; green construction paper; empty egg carton; glue; markers; scissors

Activity Detail

Give your child a small box such as a pound sugar box. Have him or her cover it with green construction paper and lay the box flat. Your child can now cut out four legs from the construction paper and glue them onto the sides and front. Now, remove two compartments from an egg carton to be used for eyes. Your child should first paint them green and then add black circles or googly eyes for the eyes. Glue both 'eyes' onto the top of the box near one end. Then cut a slot in front of the eyes for the coins. Your child can use a marker to incorporate the slot into a big happy smile!!

This is a very unique activity that can be easily modified with other colors to represent your child's favorite animal.

There might be a way to modify this bank (or just to make 3 banks) so that you will have different compartments: 1 for saving, 1 for charity/giving, and 1 for spending.

You could even change what kind of animal you are making.
