Materials Needed: brown or white paper lunch bags, paint, white and black paper scraps, scissors and glue.
The children paint the bags the color they'd like their frogs.
The children cut out, as best they can, large white circles and then 2 smaller black circles (for the eyes and pupils) and glue them on the folded bottom part that will be the face.
Also, provide red/pink paper for them to cut out a tongue. Curl it by wrapping it around a pencil to make it curl up.
They can use scraps to cut out arms.
In advance, cut out frog head shapes and make the eye holes.
Hole punch the sides for yarn or string.
Let the children decorate with supplies you put out (paint, miscellaneous arts and craft materials,etc. I would avoid glitter as you don't want that to fall in their eyes when they are wearing their masks.).
When dry, encourage the children to string yarn through the holes and they can then wear them!
