Homemade Frog Bank


In this fun hands-on activity, children make piggy banks that aren't pigs!

Cover an old shoe box or cereal box with green construction paper. Cut a small slit in the front to put your money in. Draw around the slit to make it part of the frog's mouth. Cut two cups from an egg carton, paint them green, add googly eyes, and glue them to the box for the frog's eyes. Finally, use green construction paper to cut front and hind legs. Attach the hind legs to the sides of the box, and add the front legs to the front of the box under the mouth.
