I found this cute green frog at GW and want to use it for a special project. I don't want it to be so cutesy, but it will be for kids so no gore or stuff. I just want to sort of Halloween it up some to look like something a witch might use. Any ideas? Here are a few photos of it. If you suggest painting, be sure to mention what type of paint. Remember, I am not very crafty and need details. LOL

Side view: Sorry about the tape--this was before I bought it.

I am not even sure what it is. LOL Maybe a small sand box????

The top comes off and when it is on the frog there is a wide opening across the top under the eyes where things can be inserted

If it's plastic the Krylon spray paint for plastic will work to paint it. Or you can do like I do & obsessively use Killz spray on everything THEN paint it.

As for painting, it needs to be a darker green, give him some bloodshot eyes, a long tongue & some sharp teeth.

Here are some Stolloween mache frogs for inspiration:

I don't know what you have planned but I would just add eyes and fill the frog with gummy bugs then make the kids reach into the opening for their treat. Tell them froggy was very hungry today :)

Not sure yet! It was too cute not to pick up!!!

I just looked it up and it is a Boon brand and evidently a thing that you put bath tub toys in and the holes on it let them drain and dry. A new one on e-bay is almost $60!!!! Wow! It is called a bath scoop.

Okay feeling better about what this is going to be used for (sort of an idea for my daughter). It sells for around $20 to $30 on other sites. I just paid $4 for it.

I've got two young kiddos - I recognized what that was right away! LOL! Depending on what you do with him, it might be neat to attach some wheels to the bottom and a long pole with a handle so that kids could push him around like a rolling toy.
