I saw this cute little creature on Pinterest, but it originally came from a blog called The Preschool Experiment. He was so easy to make, and adds some fun to placing objects into a container.
He is made out of a clean parmesan cheese container, and all he needs is pom pom eyes with googly eyes glued on. I recommend using hot glue or another strong glue because they can pop off easily. We then fed squinkies to the frog (and I see in the picture that we fed a frog to the frog), and practiced fine motor skills using tweezers and in-hand manipulation by holding a bunch of squinkies at the same time.
You could use pom poms to put in his mouth, or any other small object. I would also use chopsticks or clothespins to work on some other strengthening.
