Leap Day only comes once every four years…so take a minute to make it a little different. Here are a few ideas of activities to do with your kids…
- Make origami jumping frogs. Link to printable instructions for an origami jumping frog (from origami-fun.com)
- Make “Leap Day” cupcakes. Use a white cake mix and blue frosting. Glue a clip art frog to a toothpick and placed it in the cupcake. Simple. Here is a link to printable black and white frogs and a link to printable colored frogs. I got the clip art from pixabay.com.
- Play a game of Leap Frog with your family. You get in a line facing the same direction, leave a space in between each person and squat down like a frog. Then the last person in line jumps over each person ahead of him/her. He/she lands at the front and squats down. The new “last” person repeats the process.
If you ‘d like to make homemade frosting, here is a link to the frosting I always use just omit the cocoa…Zu-Cake
