10 Terrific Treats for Frog Lovers

10 Terrific Treats for Frog Lovers

In addition to reading frog books, singing frog songs, and doing frog activity sheets, I’m planning to make a few frog snacks to celebrate Leap Day today. And for inspiration, I’m perusing these 10 Terrific Treats for Frog Lovers.

These snacks are too good to eat only once every four years! In addition to Leap Day (February 29), they’d also a perfect snack to serve at…

  • frog-themed birthday parties
  • green-cuisine meals on St. Patrick’s Day
  • garden parties
  • nature hikes or campouts
  • science classes at homeschool co-ops

My son Isaac made some frog-themed cookies of his own to serve to his fellow co-op students the day they did their frog dissection in biology lab. Aren’t these cute?

As usual, Pinterest had a wealth of ideas to choose from, like these little grape frogs from Kara’s Party Ideas. They’re simple and sweet.

He used green and white chocolate melts to make the frogs. Once they hardened, he stood them atop sugar cookies adorned with green icing lily pads.

Continuing with the healthy snack theme, how about these bell pepper frogs? The instructions at Homestead Survival call for grilling them, but I think my kids would prefer eating them raw. We love bell peppers — especially when they’re cold and crisp!

And if you are really crafty, you can whip up a batch of cute cupcakes. I couldn’t find instructions for these, but if you’ve worked with fondant before, it should be pretty easy to duplicate the design by looking at this picture from Flickr:
