Frog Jumping Day

Whether you’re jumping over a frog or jumping like one, today is a great day for hippity-hoppers.

Frog Jumping Day can be traced back to Missouri author Mark Twain, and his first short story, 'Jim Smiley and His Jumping Frog.' If you’d like to read this story today, it’s also known as 'The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County' as well as 'The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County.'

Frogs make great pocket pets, so you may want to celebrate Frog Jumping Day by getting a frog—or a toad—as a pet. Many frogs are simple to care for, fun to watch, and can be a great first pet for children—as long as they maintain proper hand washing techniques!

Raising pet frogs can be as simple as buying a frog habitat with a coupon for tadpoles, and raising your frogs from infancy. Tadpoles can be super simple to raise. But it can be a lot more fun to pick out Kermit all grown-up, especially for young children eager to see their frog all ready to hop and croak!
