This year was leap year, so frog crafts were all the rage. But it doesn't have to be leap year to make a fun froggy hat with your kids. A great project for little boys too! 

The supplies you will need for this project are:

green baseball hat
acrylic paint: black, white, spring green, foliage green
textile medium
round stencil sponges
black Sharpie marker
3″x1″ piece of red felt
instant grab glue

The textile medium will turn your acrylic paint into fabric paint. So if you ever need to wash your hat, you can. However, keep in mind that the tongue probably won’t survive and you may need to create a new one should the need arise to launder it. To mix, use one part texile medium and 2 parts paint.

Step 1: make the eyes

Dip large round applicator in foliage green paint and gently scrape off excess. Press applicator onto hat above the bill, gently turn the applicator in a circular motion to make the circle larger. Do this on both sides for the eyes.

It looks like snake.
Kind of looks more like a snake imo, but it's still pretty neat nonetheless.
