Resin Leap Frogs

Resin Leap Frogs don’t just have to be for leap day! While it’s the cutest activity to play every four years you can also play it anytime you want a fun indoor hide and seek activity.

If you didn’t see our step by step on how to make our Leap Frog Molds, check it our HERE FIRST! Then come back and make some cutie glitter frogs with us.

Materials Needed:

Step 1: Prepare Your Workspace

The first step is to ensure your workspace is well-ventilated, clean, and covered a disposable or silicone surface to catch any spills. Wear protective gloves and eyewear to safeguard against resin splashes.

Step 2: Mix the Resin

Amazing Clear Cast is a 1:1 resin mixing ratio. Start with mixing one part resin with one part hardener. (These are tiny resin frogs so you do not need to pour a lot of resin. I used about 90ml in total and made 15 frogs.) Once you have poured the resin and hardener into a mixing cup, stir slowly and thoroughly for about 3 minutes to avoid creating too many air bubbles.

Step 3: Add Color

If you want colored frogs, or glitter frogs, now’s the time to add your colorant to the mixed resin. Add a small amount of dye or pigment and mix thoroughly until you achieve the desired color.

Step 4: Pour the Resin

Slowly pour the mixed and colored resin into the silicone frog mold.

Step 5: Remove Bubbles

Since this mold is so small, patience is key. After I poured I waited 10-15 minutes to allow air bubbles to ride before hitting it with my heat gun. You can also use a culinary torch or spritz it with some rubbing alcohol. The goal here is just to dissipate the bubbles at the very top.

Step 6: Cure the Resin then Demold

Allow the resin to cure overnight or for about 8-10 hours. Full cure can take 24-48 hrs. Once resin is fully cured to the touch you are ready to demold.

Step 8: Finishing Touches

Once you’ve demolded it’s time to add some little eyeballs on your jumpy friends. I used white acrilic and the end of a paint brush to dot the white for the eyes and then once dried I used a black sharpie marker for the pupils. This last step couldn’t be easier and completes your little frog buddies.

BONUS- 2 FREE Printables for you to give to the tiny humans once you’ve hidden the leap frogs all over the school, classroom, or home.

Aren’t they adorable!?? Resin Leap Frog’s are quickly becoming the cutest trend at schools every four years where we live. This year my kids are looking forward to searching and seeing how many frogs they can find to create their leap frog army.
