It’s almost Leap Year!! Here are tons of “froggy” inspired games, treats, and crafts to celebrate this special day that comes only once every 4 years.  You will love these 9 leap year party games and printables. They are easy to make and fun activities for kids of all ages.

Pin the Crown on the Frog– Here’s a poster you can print out on 4 sheets of paper, glue on a green posterboard and laminate, or simply tape together for an easy and fun game!
Musical Lily Pads – Print out these lily pads and tape on the floor. Play with the same rules as musical chairs.
Frog Hunt – Print out a bunch of these cute frogs and hide them around your house for the kiddos to find.Frog Bean Bag Craft – You could use this as a craft, in a game, and also as a party favor for each guest. It has a template all ready for you to print out.

Pass the Toad

Using a stuff animal frog, play this game like “Hot Potato”. Eliminating a player who has the frog when the music stops until there is one winner left.

The project requires either sewing or hot glue skills. A child of age 9 or so could do the project with adult supervision.
