These Five Speckled Frogs activities are the perfect way to bring fun and learning to the classic nursery rhyme. I’ve got a printable of the lyrics and four great crafts your kids will enjoy while you sing the Five Little Speckled Frogs song together.
Singing and Learning with 5 Speckled Frogs
I love nursery rhymes and preschool counting songs. Not only are they fun to sing with the little ones, these songs help teach basic counting skills which are needed as a building block in the early years foundation stage.
Five Speckled Frogs is a simple song you can sing at mat time, act out, or even turn into a fun craft.
In fact, we have a whole heap of ideas for fun frog crafts over at Craft Play Learn that would go well with this song and printable.
Five Little Speckled Frogs Activities
If you would like some fun and educational activity ideas to go alongside this frog nursery rhyme, look no further. Here are some five green and speckled frogs activities your kids will love!
Why not create a frog lifecycle and teach the little ones how frogs lay eggs, change into tadpoles and eventually develop into the frog.
You could make Frog puppets to use at mat time or paint your own toilet tube frogs. This would be a fun craft activity and is super easy to set up and do with the kids while singing the 5 little speckled frogs song.
Make a frog themed sensory bin for the little ones to enjoy. Sensory activities are a great way to help children learn as they experience touch, sight, sound, taste and smell.
You could print out these free frog playdough counting mats. They are super cute and a great way to extend learning and counting skills.
HOW DOES THE SPECKLED FROG SONG GO?
You might see two different versions of the lyrics for this song. Some people sing “five little speckled frogs,” and some sing “five green and speckled frogs.” Choose whatever you like better!
Here are the Five Little Speckled Frogs lyrics:
Five little speckled frogs
Sat on a speckled log
Eating the most delicious bugs (yum yum)
One jumped into the pool
Where it was nice and cool
Then there were four green speckled frogs (glub glub)
Busy now? Why not pin this fantastic resource for later? Pinning supports my blog and allows me to create more content to help little ones learn. I’m truly grateful for any social shares.
