Montessori frog life cycle activities can be fun for toddlers as well as preschoolers. My 19-month-old granddaughter has been in love with frogs lately. She adores the miniature frog in our beginning sounds object game, and she’s fascinated with three small frog lawn ornaments on a neighbor’s front lawn that we pass in our regular walks. So I put together a frog life cycle tray for her.

Montessori Frog Life Cycle Activities for Toddlers and Preschoolers
It’s best to start any zoology activity by observing the live animal if possible. If you have access to frogs or can make a trip to the pond, that’s great! If you can grow your own frogs, that’s even better!
For work materials at home or in the classroom, I love the toddler frog life cycle materials available inexpensively from Montessori Print Shop. They have high-quality photographs that are perfect for showing the frog life cycle. I used the Toddler Frog Life Cycle Book and Toddler Frog Life Cycle Cards.
Zoey enjoys matching the frog life cycle objects to the cards.
A Montessori frog life cycle game is especially fun for toddlers.
I think the toddler frog life cycle materials are great for preschoolers, too. Montessori Print Shop has additional frog materials for preschoolers that work well for any frog work.

In this video, my adult daughter, Christina (a former Montessori child), shows a way to present the life cycle of a frog for toddlers and young preschoolers. She also shares some frog life cycle activities with her niece/my granddaughter, Zoey.
Note: We’d love it if you’d “like” the video and subscribe to our YouTube channel!
