Duck Art and Song
Invite the children to trace around a duck template (cardboard or cookie cutter) on yellow construction paper. Let them attempt to cut out the shape with safety scissors. Very young children will need your help. Place this duck shape aside for later.
The next step is for the children to sponge paint the water (blue paint) onto white construction paper. Tell them to dip the sponges into the paint and dab over the entire paper. When dry, glue the yellow duck and the following song verse to the paper. The children will enjoy making this picture, learning the song, and taking it home to share with their family.
Type and photocopy this song, so the children will have a copy on their art page.
There's a little white duck sitting on the water,
A little white duck doing what he oughta!
He took a bite of the lily pad, flapped his wings
and he said, "I'm glad
I'm a little white duck sitting in the water,
Quack, quack, quack!"
