Make bulging frog eyes by cutting two strips of green paper that are rounded on one end. Fold the straight end under (at the dotted line), and glue on an eye (made of paper or a googly eye).

Glue or tape the folded base of the eyes onto the paper bag.

Cut a long tongue out of paper. Glue in in the frog's mouth.
