Fill up your children’s collection of animals by making these Perler bead frog patterns, one of the most recognizable amphibians for kids!
Making animals out of Perler beads can be a really exciting activity, and frogs are no exception.
These typically small animals live near ponds, rivers, and lakes, and can breathe underwater through their thin skin. Frogs, salamanders, toads, and newts, in general, can look slimy, and that’s because they require water to survive.
Children who feel uneasy about these types of animals might have a change of heart once they complete making one of these frog melty bead patterns! I’ve compiled different frogs, from simple-looking ones to adorable frogs to popular frogs you might recognize.
3 Perler Bead Frog Kits
1. Green Perler Beads Pack
There are many species of frogs with different colors, including yellow, red, blue, and black, but the most popular image of the frog and one that typically comes to our minds is a green-colored frog.
While you can challenge yourself and your little ones to vary the color of the patterns provided below, I find that beginners should stick with the original designs, which heavily feature the green color. So, it’s best to stock up on these green beads before embarking on your Perler bead activity.
Beginners trying to figure out the basics of Perler beads can find out more in our easy Perler bead patterns guide!
2. Perler H2O Frog Pattern
Classic Perler beads require heat to melt and fuse the beads together. While ironing the beads shouldn’t pose any problem for an adult, it might pose a challenge if your little ones want to participate in the process of linking the beads together.
That’s where these Perler H2O come in. Unlike the heat-activated process of fuse beads, these innovative beads are activated through water, allowing children to be part of the entire Perler bead activity.
3. Frog Pegboard for Perler Fuse Beads
Preschoolers who are not yet able to discern patterns can stick to this frog pegboard. While there’s still some creativity required to create a frog, a process with which adults can help, there’s no need to think about where each bead needs to go with this pegboard.

4. Simple Frog Perler Pattern
Younger children don’t need to have a hard time with such an exciting activity as Perler beads. PJDoesStuff provides one of the simplest frog Perler bead patterns.
5. Young Frog Design
Unlike the life cycle of humans, who are born on land and grow on land, frogs have a very unique life cycle and they undergo through change a process called metamorphosis.
Frog eggs are laid in water. They hatch into tadpoles that swim in the water. After some time, they transform into frogs that can go on land.
Here’s goldflower depicting a seemingly young frog who looks like it just got out of water.
6. Easy Frog Perler Beads
As mentioned before, frogs come in different colors. It’s a way of saying to their predators that they’re filled with poison; because of that, they’re to be left alone.
