We don't need an excuse to have fun; the fact that a leap year only occurs every four years is totally a reason to do some fun things. 

Of course there's lots of capitalising on the frog theme for a leap year, so don't hold it against us if we use the leap theme a few times.

Here's a list of things you can do to celebrate the leap year with your children.

1. Make a leap year cake - we love this step-by-step by creative lifestyle blogger Chelsea over at Lovely Indeed.

2. Foam cup frog craft

3. Your children can write or dictate to you, a letter to themselves to be opened on future leap days.

4. Play leap frog.

5. Make a paper bag frog puppet.

6. Learn about leap years. Also here.
