We’re just finishing up our At the Pond theme and I found this awesome Safari Ltd Life Cycle of a Frog* that I just had to have. No surprise there, right? This mama loves shopping, especially for educational stuff. Lol…

I grabbed some Shimmering Blue Sapphire Kinetic Sand* that we had and of course the Safari Ltd Life Cycle of a Frog and put both on a tray for the little guy.

We talked about each stage in the development of a frog. We started with eggs to tadpoles, and then tadpoles without gills and tadpoles with legs, and of course adult frogs too.

What you need

  • Shimmering Blue Sapphire Kinetic Sand
  • Safari Ltd Life Cycle of a Frog

Here’s how to do it

  • Encourage your child to create a pond with the Shimmering Blue Sapphire Kinetic Sand.
  • Work together to put each stage in the development of a frog in the correct order and talk about the changes that are occurring.
  • Give your child the opportunity to try it on their own.

I made a point of letting the little guy have some time and space to just explore. It’s so much fun to see toddlers and preschoolers making connections on their own.

He would put the pieces in order and then point to each one and name what stage of development it was. He also pretended that the tadpoles were swimming in the pond and the frog was of course hopping around too.
