Activity Inspired by I Don’t Want to Be a Frog
by Alexie Basil and Clo Blanco
Would you ever eat a bug sandwich?!
While reading I Don’t Want to Be a Frog, we were so inspired by the illustration (above) of Frog eating a bug sandwich with his father that we decided to make our own. Check out the activity below to make your own bug sandwiches with your class!
For our bug-licious sandwiches, we used bread, turkey, salami, cheese, hummus, lettuce, onions, tomatoes, raisins, bananas, cookie dough, chocolate, hazelnut spread, mayo, marshmallows, and olives. Feel free to get creative using any ingredients you have on hand and are willing to eat!
The first step is getting organized. Cut, mash, or combine any ingredient that requires it. Then arrange your ingredients in front of you so that everything is easily within reach.
Next, start to assemble your own sandwich! Here’s a step-by-step look at how we made one of our bug sandwiches:
We named this sandwich Worm Eyes. It’s stuffed with lettuce, seaweed, cheese, salami, and raisins. Looks yummy, right? We thought so!
Here are some other bug-licious sandwiches we made.
And now it’s your turn! Please post pictures of your students’ creations on social media with the tag #ScholasticBookClubs.
