Whether you want just straight green or you want to mix up your own there's enough paint here to paint hundreds, maybe even thousands frogs.

Set out lots of yellow and some blue and let the kids mix the colors to make various shades of green.

Large paper covered in shades of green can be cut into frog or vegetation shapes to create bulletin boards, collages or other froggy art projects.
