What is a frog’s favorite time? Leap year, of course. (Did you find my frog joke absolutely ribbetting?) Okay, I’ll stop now, but you gotta admit . . . frogs are fun. And frogs make a great theme for a party, especially for leap year. There are all kinds of fun leap year frog party games (which I’ll blog about next week) and some really fun frog-themed foods which I’m going to show you today. February 29 is coming soon! So hop right down the page and check out these leap year frog party food ideas.
The Foodies blog has lots of great recipes for fun food including a link to a video tutorial for these frogs made from peppers. You can put them on the grill or eat them raw. Kids can help put them together if you do the cutting.
Jenn from Clean & Centsible says these frogs made with apples and grapes are a quick and easy frog party food to put together. What a great way to get kids to eat more nutritious fresh fruit.

I couldn’t find the original source for this Media Cache photograph of “frog eggs” but I wanted to include the idea because it’s a healthy version of a frog egg snack.

Speaking of pickles, put together one big dill and several baby gherkins to make this adorable “pickled frog.” Better Homes & Gardens has the instructions.
All those pickles making you thirsty? Well, how about some “swamp water”? Kara’s Party Ideas has lots of frog party food ideas like this one that was made for a Princess and the Frog birthday party.
The Crafty Woman has lots of good ideas for a reptile-themed party. There are no instructions for this adorable watermelon frog, but it looks pretty straight forward. Just slice a lime and add a couple of cherry tomatoes for eyes!

Don’t be afraid to “leap” right into one of these frog-themed recipes. But if you have to go to the grocery store for ingredients, make sure you park legally so you don’t get “toad” away. Yeah, I know . . . I hear the collective groan. I know these bad puns are about to make you “croak”. Okay, okay, I’ll stop now.
