It's time to start planning your child's party and a frog theme has been picked. So, now what? How do you create a fun and exciting party that is about frogs? Not to worry because we have you covered. Check out these ideas for a delightful frog themed party kids will love.
Create the Bog
Make lily pads. Cut out lily pads from green paper and make a trail of them from the driveway to the front door or draw them using green sidewalk chalk. You can put the name of a guest on each one. Your guests can frog hop from one to the next on their way to the front door.
Decorate the party room with house plants. If you have any plants in your house, use them and any fake trees you have to decorate the party room. Have toy frogs peeking out from the leaves.
Use toy frogs as table toppers and centerpieces. Round up all the toy frogs you own and use them as table toppers and centerpieces. Don't forget to include the ones that have frogs driving cars or doing other silly activities. Stuffed animal frogs are also great for decorating the party room.
Tape frog print outs on the walls. You can use frog posters or print out free frog coloring pages and have your guests color one as they arrive. Tape them on the walls as they finish their pages.
Make a frog pond. Every frog themed party needs a frog pond. Make your own frog pond by filling a small baby pool with water and adding lots of plastic frogs. Be sure the pool is always supervised to avoid accidents.
Display a fun welcome sign. Make a sign for the front door that says, “Hop this way for (your child's name) party!”
Serve Food for Frogs
Serve green, child friendly foods. Fun foods like wedges of green apple, green grapes, green gummy worms, and green Jell-o are perfect for a frog themed party.
Serve flies on a log. Stuff celery sticks with cream cheese and stick on raisin flies.
Make frogs in a pond. Put a scoop of lime sherbet into a cup and add clear soda. The sherbet will float to the top and look like a frogs head peeking out of the water. Add two mini marshmallow or chocolate chips for eyes. Serve each one with a spoon.
Make a lily pad birthday cake. Bake any size round cake. After the birthday cake has cooled, cut a small “v” shape out of the top so that the cake looks like a lily pad. Frost the cake with green frosting and use a darker green decorator icing to make the veins of a leaf. Top the cake with a plastic frog.
Play Fun Frog Themed Games
There are several fun frog themed games you can add to your party. These games use problem-solving skills and are great for team building.
The princess and the frog game is a fun guessing game where one guest is the princess, one guest is the frog prince, and the other guests are any animal of their choice. The princess is blindfolded, and everyone forms a circle around her. When the princess says, “With this kiss, the frog becomes a prince,” all the guests make random animal sounds and only the frog ribbits. The princess then must make her way to the frog. Once she believes she knows who the frog is, she hands a Hershey's kiss to the guest. If she is wrong, the guest becomes the princess. If she is right, then the frog gets to keep the Hershey's kiss.
Another fun guessing game is the frog detective game. One guest is the detective, one guest is the frog, and the remaining guests are flies. All the guests form a circle around the detective, whose job is to find the frog. When the detective isn't looking, the frog sticks his tongue out at one fly at a time to “eat” them. When a fly is eaten, they fall down “dead.” The detective must figure out who the frog is before there is only one remaining fly in order to win. If the frog eats all but one fly before he's discovered, the frog wins.
