In the latest TM Patch Swap, my partner, Inselaeffchen, said she'd like a patch to help her girls learn science. I know that frog (and butterfly) life cycles are something that elementary kids learn about in the US, and since I love frogs, I figured that I'd make the frog version. And, so that her girls could practice putting the stages in the proper order, I made it interactive! I attached each piece to the patch with a snap, so they could be removed and played with.



I had found this really cool frog life cycle fabric on Etsy (it was printed by Spoonflower), and it was absolutely perfect!



I have a non-interactive version in the works for myself Smiley

WOW! This is super clever and cool! And that fabric is the bee's knees! The toad's toes? Something.

Thanks! I love it when a brainstorm actually works the way I saw it in my mind. That fabric was such a lucky find, too.

And, MistressT, I am totally adopting the expression "Toad's Toes!"

It's an amazing patch, and "Huffie" had already a go and loved it. The snaps are loosening off a bit so it's easier for the girls to get the frog cycle items off.

Thank you soooo much, craftADDchick! It's fabulous!! Now I just have to figure out what I do with the science patches ... what did you do with yours for your classroom?
