Cut leaves away from pink lily pads and add on top of the green lily pads.  Cut bump from noise maker.

Assemble Hoppy the Frog and add noise maker as his tongue.  If you are not sure how to assemble Hoppy, Karen Burniston has a fantastic how-to video you can watch.

 An Action Wobble was used on this card (behind Hoppy) but it is completely optional.

 Add large green lily pad to pond and place Hoppy on lily pad.
