Ducks are a type of bird called waterfowls because they are usually found in the water...such as in rivers, lakes, ponds, streams, and water basins. Ducks are similar to geese and swans, but I always find that they are much more gentle with people. Ducks have cute webbed feet to help them paddle around the water. Ducks are covered in water-proofed feathers and many times if you walk around a lake you will see feathers everywhere. These are usually duck or goose feathers. There are many different types of ducks and this is why many look so different from eachother. But one thing all ducks do is "Quack, Quack, Quack".
Print This Duck Out and Glue it on lightweight cardboard (such as cereal box cardboard). Cut out your drawing. Color duck a light orange or yellow. Youc an laminate your duck or use contact paper on it if you want to keep the duck toy ... or just leave it as it is for a temporary duck toy. Ask your Mom or Dad for help. From I 1/2 inch cork, have your parent cut away a section to flatten it as in the picture above. On the opposite side, have your Mom or Dad cut a slit. Glue the duck into the slit. Then set it afloat in the bath tub when you are taking your bath.
This duck is adorable...he has a silly cartoon face and he is Quaking ' Happy Easter' out of the side of his mouth. All you have to do is follow the instructions in the illustrations above and you will have this duck on your paper as well. Just fold a piece of paper in half lengthwise. Then Draw a letter 'J' on the lower half of the page, on the fold. Then draw a dotted lin that goes up towareds the left of the page. Now cut on the letter 'J' but bend on the dotted line. Now push it back down in place. On picture #3, you can see that you place the page like it is a tent and then push it down towards the other side of the page. Now open up the greeting card so that the duck's bill comes out of the page in a 3 dimensional fashion. Now for drawing the duck. Draw 2 circles above the duck's bill for eyes....then draw 2 bubble letter 'U's in side the eyes for pupils. Draw an oval around the eyes for the head. Draw a smaller circle for teh body, with a triangular tail. Draw a half circle for the next and ovals for eggs. You now have a cute cartoon duck popping out of your card.
These duck ponds are a lot of fun to make. Get a tin can of some sort...they are magnetic. Use the lid for the pond. Trace a blue piece of paper with the lid and then attach to the underneath part of the lid with glue. Then draw a long strip of zig-zags on green paper for grass. Glue the grass around the outside of the outside and inside ridge of the pond. Then draw lillp pads on green paper. Glue these to the blue paper. Now get some yellow and orange clay...follow the instructions above to make the duck. Place the magnet in the bottom of the duck's body. Let it completely dry before placing in the duck pond. You can make as many ducks as you want. Try to make a frog if you are over-ambitious.
This is a great craft for youngsters. Firstly, print out these printable duck patterns. Now help child cut out ducks and color them heavily with wax crayons to protect the paper from water seaping in. Wax resists water. Color both sides except for the spot where the heads will be pasted together. Fold on the dotted lines and paste heads together on uncolored spot. Adjust folds so ducks will stand. Child may paint pie tin with blue poster paint, or pie tin may be painted ahead of time. Let child stand ducks in pie tins or float the ducks in water as seen in the illustration above. I hope that you have fun.
