Anatomy of a Frog (FREE PRINTABLE)

Hi guys, Shannon here. If you haven’t been following along, team member Emily, has been doing a weekly craft challenge called “Craft the Zoo” over on Instagram. Follow #craftthezoo or @makingwithmommy to see all her wonderful creations!

Whenever I can, I like to coincide our playful learning prompts with her weekly theme and this week we’re exploring Rainforest Animals! I’ve always personally been fascinated by poisonous tree frogs. They come in crazy brilliant colors and are often covered in spots. Not to mention, some are as small as your fingernail.

So today, I’m sharing a few more printables for you to play along at home. These can be used for studying regular frogs or poisonous tree frogs, just adapt by your color and pattern choice.

The FREE PRINTABLE includes:

March Play Lab Recap!

Hi, it’s Grace here! I wanted to share some of what we’ve been up to at Play Lab this month. We’ve had such a great time exploring March’s theme: Human Body. Last weekend’s Play Lab in particular was such a fun testament to Kid Lab flexibility. Sometimes, you plan on exploring the human body indoors- and Saturday morning is a gorgeous, sunny day - so you go outside!

When the kids lead the way, it’s amazing the new ways they find to learn. We went out to the garden and explored some of the newly blossoming beds and realized that being curious about where our food comes from is a way of discovering ways that the human body is nourished!

We even discovered some carrots!

As the weather warms up, I can’t wait to see all the new avenues for curiosity as kids explore our outdoor spaces. We’re so excited to dive into April’s theme and hope y’all will join us!
