Just because Leap Year only comes around every four years doesn’t mean you have to wait to celebrate it, especially if you have a birthday on February 29th! Celebrate the one-of-a-kind day with a leap day obstacle course or learn how to make little origami frogs, since frogs are the unofficial mascot for Leap Day.
