Simple Model of the week – leap into action with a jumping frog

This classic, traditional model is easy to fold, from the diagram in the simple models section of our website. A great model to teach and play with!

Why not try a variation to see if you can improve your frog’s jumping?

Action models like this one show how versatile a material paper is – if you have some card cut a 2×1 rectangle and miss out step 1 of the diagram. Experiment with different paper and card to see what makes the highest jump.  Or try an alternative version –  the Ninja Jumping Frog – as taught in this video
