Bas the frightened tree frog is a beautiful picture book, in which a lot of interaction is possible. It is not only to be used in the theme of being afraid, but is also just super fun to read to! The Knutseljuf has made a craft tip, so that you too can craft this tree frog with wooden popsicle sticks.
Supplies:8 wooden ice sticks, green, white and blue paint (e.g. Creall top deco), 5 pieces of orange paper, piece of green and white paper, sturdy scissors, black marker, glue (e.g. Creall Kid's Glue Stick) and a twig
Print out the template and cut out the parts
Glue the 5 sticks on the frog bodice and cut out the shape with sturdy large scissors
Cut 4 feet of orange paper and 3 circles for the eye
Cut the sticks to size:2x 6cm, 2x 5cm, 2x 4cm
Paint the bodice, the top 3 sticks green, the bottom 2 sticks white
Paint the paws:3 sticks green, the other 3 sticks blue
Put white and blue dots of paint on his (green) back with the blunt side of a stick
- Stick the eye and stick the legs together and to the bodice
Paint the twig (if you want)
- Paint a board, canvas board or canvas cloth of min. 23cm wide and min. 25cm high (the example is 23x37cm)
- After drying the paint, glue the twig with the frog to the substrate
- Bass doesn't have to be afraid anymore, he's safe now!
