WHAT YOU NEED
  • 1 empty 4.23 oz. NESTLÉ JUICY JUICE box
  • Craft knife
  • Hot glue gun
  • Green spray paint
  • Black permanent marker
  • Heavy card stock
  • Cellophane tape
  • Safety scissors
  • Red acrylic paint
  • Paint brush
  • 1 rubber band
  • Utility knife
  • 1 pair google eyes (available at craft stores)

HOW TO DO IT
  • Wash and dry a 4.23 oz. NESTLÉ JUICY JUICE box.

  • (PARENTS ONLY) Cut off the top portion of the box (containing the straw opening). This opening will be the bottom of the frog.

  • Print out the arms and legs template onto heavy card stock. Cut out the pieces.

  • In a well-ventilated area, spray paint the box, arms and legs with green spray paint.

  • With a black permanent marker, add spots to the frog's body, arms and legs

  • With a hot glue gun, attach the google eyes to the top of the box.

  • Paint in your frog's tongue with red acrylic paint, let dry.

  • Attach the arms and legs using cellophane tape or a glue gun.

  • (PARENTS ONLY) Cut a small hole into the top center of the box using a utility knife.

  • Cut a rubber band to make one long strand. Tie a knot in one end and thread it through the hole in the box.

  • Now just hold onto the end of the rubber band, move your arm up and down and watch your frog jump!

TIPS
  • To add a small handle to the end of the elastic band, just thread the end of the elastic through a 1 inch wide wooden bead and secure with a knot. Add a dab of glue so that the knot stays tied.

FOLLOW UP FUN
  • Go the library and check out children's books about frogs. Your child can help the frog jump while you read.

  • Make a Juice Box Jumper Mobile (See An Elementary Mobile in Related Activities)
