Three members of the Town & Country Garden Club presented the “Frightened Frog” Project at “The Tot Spot” Daycare and 4K classes in Nanih Waiya. Members were Debbie Moody, Diane Luke and Elaine Thompson. There were 24 students in attendance.
This is a program to educate children about the preservation of the frog. At this young age, the children will learn many aspects about saving the frog.
Frogs have been around since the dinosaur. They are amphibians.
The spraying of pesticides can certainly harm them. Frogs have a sense of hiding in safe places and coming out to eat insects and drink water. They may be green and turn brown or brown and turn green. Therefore, they blend into their habitat. Frogs like to be around ponds and lakes. They like to hide under lily pads.
Some Frogs are an endangered species. The most common in the area are the toads. They like to sing at night. Sometimes they sound like a symphony, only in a croaking sound.
There is no truth that frogs cause warts. However, it is a neat way to keep children from handling them.
The members assembled a frog by using sliced green apples for the body, marshmallows for the eyes and chocolate chips for the eyes. Each child was given the same materials in a zip lock bag to make their own frog. Needless to say, this was a challenge for some, but the effort was there.
The next project will be presented at the Library on March 29.
