I made this Frog Launcher out of scraps for an event at work. The kids (and some adults) were lined up waiting to take a whack and send the frog flying.

-- Now, where did I put that?

I have never learned to like frogs, but this one, I am trying. Surely, it will be fun.

I bought the frogs from my local Target store. They were in a summer reduced bin so I don’t know if they have them year round.

-- Now, where did I put that?

It amazes me to see how resourceful both children and adults are when it comes to inventing ways to have fun. Nice work.

I used a scrap piece of PVC pipe. I drilled two holes (counter sunk) into the sea saw board and two holes into the pvc pipe. The sea saw was attached to the pipe with pan head screws and bolts. The short board that does the flipping is attached with a hinge.

-- Now, where did I put that?
