I can’t get over how cute my little ducks are. Watching them flap their wings and run around the yard in a game of following the leader made the day worth all the energy 4 kids demand. Quack. Quack. QUAAACCKKK!
With Mother Goose Time today, we made these super cute ducky headbands so we could pretend we were all ducks. Yep mamma duck joined in. After a few rounds of follow the leader and enough quacking around the yard to convince the neighbors, I need mental help the kids where more than happy to come in for a bit of rest.
Make your own duck headband:
- Yellow construction paper
- Orange construction paper
- Stapler scissors
- Googly eyes (or eye stickers)
- Yellow craft feathers
What to do:
- Cut the yellow paper into strips
- Staple to fit around your child’s head
- Cut orange paper into a diamond, fold in half and staple to the headband.
- Staple craft feathers to the back of the headband
- Add your choice of eyes
Once we had our headbands we took the fun outside to learn about how duck families work. We played a lot of follow the leader and discussed how baby ducks follow their mothers around in a little line.
