Leap Year, or Leap Day, comes once every four years, adding an extra day to the calendar. Leap Day or Leap Year 2012 is Wednesday February 29.
You can have lots of fun playing games with frog or leaping games and crafts. You can have fun on Leap Day without spending a lot of money.
You will want to make sure your printer is in good working condition with plenty of black and colored ink. You will need the colored ink cartridge for some of the games and crafts.
