First color the toilet paper roll using green color and leave it aside to dry completely before you continue with the next step.
Draw the head of the frog on the green cardboard.
Cut the head of the frog out on the green cardboard.
Using a black marker draw the eyes and the mouth of your frog marionette.
Using a piece of red construction paper roll it up to create a tongue to put in frogs mouth in next step. Be sure to make end long enough to glue on back of frogs head.
Cut a small line in the middle of the frogs mouth which is where you are going to put the frogs tongue you made in last step.
Glue the red tongue on the back of frog head by pushing it through the hole you cut out of mouth on previous step.
Cut the corks in half. Once you have done that you will have 4 corks. These are going to be used for the feet of your frog.
Glue the head of your frog onto the painted green toilet roll.
Cut the string so you have long enough to be able to hold up your frog when your done. Longer is better for now you can always trim it later. You will glue one end of the string to each of the corks.
Make 4 holes on the toilet paper roll, two on the bottom and two on the top.
Now put the thread inside the toilet roll leaving the cork to stand out for all 4 legs. You can make the bottom legs longer and other two shorter.
Now take other end and tie the 4 ends of the threads to the popsicle sticks. You can adjust the length of strings based on how you want your puppet to work.
Now you can play with your frong marionette puppet.
