The intense colors of chalk pastels work well for the brightly colored frogs of the rainforest. I provide two options for drawing the frog, a side view and a front view.
The fun part of this project is drawing with glue. My kids really enjoyed this process. Once dry, the glue provides a helpful barrier between the different sections of the frog. This sets the children up for success, as the dried glue helps them to see where their original drawing lines are.
