      Make a frog pond to attract frogs to your backyard. Bury a large plant saucer in the ground so that it looks like a mini in ground pool. Fill with water, and add some little aquarium rocks and a big rock to the middle to give your frogs something to rest on.

      Teach your kids the life cycle of a frog. The frog has a very interesting life that is always fun to teach a young child.

      Take a field trip to a pond, stream or wetland area where you'll hopefully be able to listen to frogs singing. If you aren't lucky enough to get a first-hand concert, go to the National Geographic website for some fun frog audio and video clips.

      Play a game of Leap Frog. The classic game of taking a giant leap over the squatting person in front of you could never get old.

    • 5

      Put together a frog quiz for your family or a school lesson. Make sure to include that a toad is really part of the frog family. Frogs hear using ears on the sides of their heads, and yes, frogs do have teeth.
