Fun Frog Facts

Frogs continue to fascinate and intrigue humans with their unique appearances and habits.  Organizations such as the National Wildlife Federation work to conserve frog populations around the world. 

Did you know that more than 4,000 species of frogs have been found on the earth? This number increases every year, too, as scientists identify new frogs in habitats across the globe. God has made an amazing world for us to enjoy, with so many frogs of every shape, size, and color!

Draw a Frog: A Step-by-Step Guide 

Step 1

Start by drawing a potato-like shape (larger on one end, smaller toward the other).

Step 2

Add a half-circle on top of the shape, then a circle a little below that to represent the frog’s eyes. Draw three C-curves (two on the bottom and one on the left of the body) to begin its legs. 

Step 3

Draw a curve inside the eye to create an eyelid. Add an opposing C-curve to the rear leg. 

Step 4

Add the feet, and erase the intersecting lines from the original potato shape. 

Step 5

Fill in the eye, but leave a tiny speck of white. Add details for the feet webbing. 

Step 6

Draw little rough shapes to represent spots on the frog’s back—and finish with a smile!
