Recently I was at our local Dollar Tree picking up supplies for another program. I like to wander around and just see what catches my eye that could be useful for storytime or to build a different program around. I spotted these little frogs in the bath toys and thought they would be perfect to do a prop version of Five Green and Speckled Frogs with!
I plan to set them on the magnetic shelf our storytime room's easel has, but they could easily sit on the edge of a table or a book cart, whatever you have handy. When the frogs jump into the pool, just push them off.
The frogs come in a set of 3 for $1 per set. So I now have 6 frogs! I will store the 5 for this rhyme together and the 6th one will go in my random animals box for when I need miscellaneous animals to fill out an idea, as in Little Gnome Hide and Seek.
In addition to the frogs, Dollar Tree has very similar ducks.
