    I'm trying to make lilypads that are large enough for preschoolers to sit on. My them is frogs and I am want to throw the lilypads out with their names on them for circle time. I figured it would be easy enough, green paper laminated, cut, hot glue a nonslip pad on the bottom and voila! But they look more like hearts to me.

    Any other ideas or maybe templates online? I've looked and looked.

    Thanks in advance!

    The folks I worked for previously had some they'd cut out of what I think was all weather carpet material, soft not astroturfy, they were cut into free form shapes and we called the lilypads, the kids didn't care if they were perfect. :) I'd think a circle with a slight pie wedge shape out of it though would work and look less like a heart.

    Just look online for lilypad clipart or look in a pattern book. I also use frogs for my theme and I just made lily pads for a birthday graph that I will put on my wall. I have a pattern book that has the lily pad in it if you would like me to email it to you. You could just enlarge it to the size you need on a copier.

    Oh yes, please! That would be a lifesaver right now. In the meantime I'll toy with the circle / pie shape. :)

    I made lily pads and I just did mine by hand. I put a frog in the middle so I guess it made it look more believable.
