Frog and Fly Catcher Game - finished frog with yard coming out of mouth and fly on the endThis is a free, fun and challenging game. You can make one frog, two, or five and make your own rules.

The object of this frog and fly catcher game is to get the string with the fly into the frog's mouth!


Example of rules:

1. Everyone holds their own frog and whoever gets the fly first in the frog's mouth wins a point, and so forth.
3. Everyone holds their own frog and last person to get fly in is eliminated and repeats until there is one person left which will be the winner.
2. In 3 minutes, how many times can you get a fly in the frog's mouth.
4. Rules can vary depending on age group, how many people playing, etc.

My kids just had fun playing with the frog as is, but this game could be made for larger groups too.

Total Time: 25 minutes
