Frogs with Lily Pads and Outdoor Scenes
If you have ever been fortunate enough to witness waterlilies blooming then you know how beautiful these pond flowers can be. Frogs love to hide among the lily pads. You can often find a few perched on the lily pads basking in the warm sunshine.
Even in wetlands, frogs hide under foliage. I love when I am working in the garden and I spot a frog hiding under the plants! Children of all ages can have fun coloring the foliage and frogs with these printable sheets.
Young children will enjoy pointing out the little frogs hidden in this coloring page. They can then color them in using their favorite colors. Frog fairy tales and books about frogs can provide inspiration for coloring in these sheets.
Different Species of Frogs
Each coloring sheet has a large image of a frog and includes the name of the species. Names are written in outline form to allow kids to practice coloring letters.
Poison Dart Frog
Older kids will enjoy finding out all of the bright colors and different patterns of the poison dart frog.
Vibrant blue, orange, yellow, red, and black can be found within different members of that species. These amazing frogs are only one inch in size and can live more than ten years! (source)
Green Tree Frog
These frogs are not only green, but contain shades of yellow and white. They spend most of their times up in trees and are also nocturnal.
You may find them at night sitting by an outdoor light hunting for bugs if you live in their habitat range.
Red-Eyed Tree Frog
One of the most colorful frogs is the red-eyed tree frog. These frogs are made up of bright beautiful colors.
Found in tropical rain forests in the lowlands from Central America up into Southern Mexico.
Even though they contain bright colors, they are actually not poisonous!
Red-eye tree frogs lay their eggs on the surface of leaves. As the eggs develop, they break open causing the developing tadpoles to fall into the water below.
Frog Life Cycle Free Printable
Pair these pages with a frog egg or tadpole hunt. Little ones are excited to see what they are learning about outside in the real word.
Observing frogs, a collection of eggs, and tadpoles at different stages of development are perfect activities for kids.
Similar to a butterfly, frogs undergo a metamorphosis. If conditions are favorable for them to stay in the tad pole stage they will delay developing into an adult frog.
Before turning into the frog that we are familiar with they grow legs while still in the tad pole stage. Back legs first, then front legs.
The tadpole is then considered a young frog as it develops and looses its gills and grows. The young frog, called a froglet completes its metamorphosis turning it into an adult frog.
Nature is amazing in so many ways!
Hopefully these free frog coloring pages have inspired you to head outside and explore frogs with your kids. Print off a few of these sheets, pack the coloring supplies, and color while observing frogs in real life.
