You have very simple steps to make this activity. You have the painting the background and painting the frog.

You will see all the steps we took the make the frog painting.

Draw the background

You draw the background on watercolor paper. You do this in pencil.

You want to make sure you have water, lily pads, and cattails. This does not need to be a detailed background. It just tells us where we are going to dot marker. If you have younger kids you can draw the background for them.

You use a line for the water at the ends of the pond and two ovals for the lily pads.

Dot Marker Paint the Background

You use dot markers to color the background. You use blues for the water, green for the lily pads and cattails, and brown for the top of the cattails.

You are can start dotting the edge of the paper. We used paper under the watercolor paper so we don’t get paint on our table.

Then you paint inside the frog cookie cutter. You want to make sure you hold the cookie cutter in place. If you have a child who can’t do that then make a stencil out of the cookie cutter.

You can do as little or as much paint as you want. We try to do a lot of paint. And when we were doing this we ran out of green paint so we ended up color mixing blue and yellow for more free paint.
