The BEST babysitter in the entire world

Is a frog.

Still, you need about 22 of them to be effective. They caught the biggest part of the batch at night, and stored them in an empty wine glass box. When the box started to move from all the jumping, I did freak out a bit.

So they moved the frogs to an empty cooler, provided water, bugs, grass and weeds.

Later, they expanded the frog’s home to the canoe.
Still, the day was filled with frog jumping games, and races. Lots of re-catching of the frogs, as well.
So, you might want to watch where you step the next time you go for a canoe ride… especially at night.

Still, I was able to get some painting done with all this activity going on.

  1. Frogs?! Sounds like they did have fun.

    I’m not quite a fan of frogs and I think I will look for other baby sitter options — not unless its Kermit =)

  2. Hmmmm…I just may have to try this idea…my kids love frogs (although mine are all girls, except 1 boy) Last time we went camping, they were loving catching the tadpoles. Maybe I should try letting them catch some frogs, then turn it into a fun all afternoon activity.

    Sounds like your kids had fun! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. What a lot of fun for your boys. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I read and enjoy many of your posts but am too lazy (busy?) to leave a comment on every one. I’ve enjoyed your Lake House posts very much. Sounds like you all have had a wonderful time. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I’ve always wanted to try frog legs, but I think them thar frogs are a little too small. You’re a braver soul than me; I’d never be able to use the cooler again without wondering what the frogs left behind.
