Use an ink blot to make a collage of dart frogs! This project also has an instructional video available!


  • Step 1
    Fold a 9x12" piece of construction paper in half and unfold. Use a paintbrush to generously apply India ink on one half of the sheet. Fold paper in half and press together to create the ink blot design. Unfold.
  • Step 2
    Cut the 9x12" piece of paper in half, on the fold. Fold one of the half sheets of paper into fourths. Cut a leg out of the folded piece of paper to make four legs.
  • Step 3
    Cut a body and two eyes out of the other half of the paper.
  • Step 4
    Fold a green sheet of paper in half long ways. Cut a leaf shape and a stem from the paper.
  • Step 5
    Use a glue stick to glue the leaf onto a sheet of construction paper to create a background for the leaf. Add crayon details.
  • Step 6
    Glue the four legs onto the leaf.
  • Step 7
    Glue the body on top of the legs. Next, glue the eyes onto the body.
  • Step 8
    Use crayons to color the frog’s details. Glue wiggle eyes onto the paper eyes to finish the frog.
