Once you find at least two frogs, you’ll need some slimeballs. Slimeballs drop from slime when defeated, which you may encounter if you’re already in a swamp. More specifically, slimes spawn in swamp biomes at night and occasionally underground.

Another option is to look for panda bears! Sneezing pandas sometimes drop slimeballs and can be found in jungles. While you’re not guaranteed to find slimeballs using this method, there is a chance to if you can’t find any slimes or happen to stumble upon a few pandas.

Frogs need at least one water block to lay frogspawn!

With your slimeballs in hand, lead your two frogs toward some water before giving them the item. One of the frogs will lay frogspawn in the water, which hatches after around 5-10 minutes. Once they do, tadpoles will appear in the water and turn into frogs. Doing this means you’ve successfully bred frogs in Minecraft!
