Welcome to our digital Stories & Crafts for preschoolers. Today Theresa shares a story about a poor duck that gets stuck doing all the work on the farm. Who will help him? Then make your own duck.
Make a Feathery Duck
- Paper: white, orange and one other sheet for the background
- White squares of tissue paper, paper towel or napkin
- Scissors, glue and something to spread the glue, such as a cotton ball or Q-Tip
- Googly eye (or black marker to draw an eye)
- Cut out a duck body from the white paper and glue it to your background paper. You can use the first page of this Duck Template if you’d like.
- Spread glue on the duck body and cover it with squares of tissue paper, paper towel or napkin to give the duck a feathery look. I just cut a napkin into one-inch squares.
- Cut legs, feet and a beak from orange paper. The second page of the template has patterns you can use. Fold the long legs like an accordion.
- Glue on the beak, legs, feet and eye.
Things to talk about
- Would you like to live on a farm? Why or why not?
- Which farm chores would be fun? Which would you NOT want to do?
- Ducks quack. What sounds do other farm animals make?
