This was a simple party for my son’s 2nd birthday. His favorite shirt had a frog on it and he loved the plastic frogs that cost $1 per pack at The Dollar Tree. When I saw this invitation at Learning Express, Frogs it was.
We invited just a few kids (with a parent) for lunch on a Sunday. A craft, an easy game, pizza and cupcakes were plenty for this age.
This is a clever craft from Family Fun using red party blowers. The kids loved blowing out their long red “tongues.” And only because my son had just discovered the joy of glitter, I let the kids make their frogs sparkly (a big hit since glitter is too messy for most parents). We also used glue sticks and sticky-back wiggly eyes. Moms had to help assemble.
Lily Pad Hop
I taped green poster board lily pads on the floor in our foyer and stuck a fake flower on a few of them. The kids pretended to be frogs jumping from lily pad to lily pad. Easy, cheap, cute.
I still love the colorful frog plates we ordered from Oriental Trading. The big, bright frog candles were adorable, but they were a little wobbly (small cupcakes, not much icing). So the kids’ cupcakes were each topped with a plastic toy frog.
A Frog Hoppers Game for ages 2-3, which my children still play with, and a frog bath toy for siblings 1 and under.
