Creating a Frog Habitat: catch and release adventures

Post image for Creating a Frog Habitat: catch and release adventures

Aunt Jennifer, my sister, calls to let the kiddos know she has a yard full of baby frogs. So they grab a bucket and we head on over to Aunt Jennifer’s house. MacGyver and Miss Enigma must have brought home 30 plus baby frogs. I stopped counting!

What do 30 baby frogs need? A habitat of course. Let’s see they need a pond, water, rocks and a place to climb.

Let me help you little guy. Hope you enjoy your new home.

I think they like it. Wait something is missing . . .

That’s much better.

Now, I think they really like it!

Release day has arrived.

Bye, Bye, I’ll miss you!

Where’s Waldo? The children observe that the frogs are camouflaged in their natural habitat.

Another successful catch and release adventure!

Cute frogs!! My children love to catch small insects/frogs and make a habitat also. Thanks for sharing! Stopping by from the Hip Homeschool Hop!

What a great way to get them thinking about what a frog would need in it’s habitat. You guys have too much fun :)

What a cool looking habitat! Hope they hang around your yard so you can continue to see them grow up!

We love frogs! They are everywhere here in N Aust at the moment too because it has started to rain. I’m hoping to get some tadpoles for the boys to watch this year.

How fun!
We have a froggy that my sons have named Jumpy who will be staying for us for a short while. Our dog kept getting a hold of the frogs in our yard and was getting very sick from licking them or trying to eat them. Since some are poisonous to dogs like the one we have for the time being, we are going to keep the frog until he is bigger and would be safer to release at a nearby pond.
Love the habitat you made for your frogs.
thank you for sharing the cool photos.

Wow, what a great experience, I don’t think I have ever come across 30 tiny frogs before! Creating a habitat is such a fabulous learning tool.
