Simple Origami Jumping Frogs

These little folded frogs were too complicated for my kids to follow along with the steps, but they loved leaping about the final product!

Once the little frogs were folded up, we drew on eyes and black spots. Kids can decorate however they choose, or even add long paper tongues!
