  Frog Game Ideas  
     

Pin the Crown on the Frog

 

Enlarge a picture of a frog and cut out gold crowns in proportion to the frog. As in pin the tail on the donkey, kids are blindfolded, spun around and have to try to pin the crown on top of the frogs head. 

Musical Lily Pads

 

Cut out large lily pads for kids to stand on. If there will be 10 kids then cut out 9 pads. 

 

Arrange the pads on the floor, use masking tape to tape down.  Play some music and when the music stops the kids must hop onto a lily pad.  Each round eliminate a player until there is one winner.

Pass the Toad

 

Using a stuff animal frog, play this game like "Hot Potato".  Eliminating a player who has the frog when the music stops until there is one winner left. 

Ribbit, Ribbit, Jump

 

Just a different version of "Duck, Duck, Goose".  The player tapped on the head when the word "jump" is said must hop and try to catch the other player who must also hop around to get back to the empty spot. 

Leap Frog Relay

 

Divide guest into teams and create a start and finish line. Each team player must leap like a frog from start to finish, then the next player can go.  The team with all players at the finish line first wins.

Game Ideas

 
     
Catch 29

Use plastic frogs (or fish) and number a few with the number 29 on their belly.

Place frogs in a small wading pool or tub with water. Let each player using a small fish tank net, capture a frog. If his frog has 29 on it, he wins!

Roll 29

Using 3 inflatable dice, each player gets two rolls (roll all 3 dice together twice) to add up his numbers to get to 29. If a player goes over they are out. The closest to 29 wins. In case of a tie, have a roll off. 

Scavenger Hunt 29

Split players into two teams. Create a list of 29 items that each team must collect. Give each team a bag. Each team has an adult guide to take them through the neighborhood knocking on neighbors doors for items on their list. Each team can have the same or different list, you choose.  Set how many items per household can be donated.  First team to collect all 29 items and return to the party house wins! 

4 Corners

 

Best if played with 6 or more players.

 

To begin, four corners (or general areas) of the room are marked from the numbers one to four.

 

One player is designated to be "It," or the "counter." This player sits in the middle of the room, closes his eyes, and counts to ten. The remaining players choose any one of the corners and quietly go and stand in that area. When the "It" player has finished counting, he calls out one of the numbers. All players who had chosen that corner or area are out of the game, and they sit down.

 

Then, "It" counts again and the remaining players move to a different corner.

 

The last person to still be in the game wins, and usually becomes the new "It."

 

If "It" calls out a corner containing no players, he either calls out another number right away or the players rotate to a new corner, you choose which version to play.

"Leaps" Bingo

Visit DLTK's Custom Bingo Cards site.  Choose the following options to create a LEAPS bingo game.

1) Choose "5x5 Number Bingo" card.

2)Choose "Numbers 1-30" theme.

3)Choose black and white or color for printing.

4) Choose game title to be "LEAPS".

5) Print bingo cards, hit refresh on bingo card to generate a new card to print.

6) Print off call list.
