Paper Plate Ducks Inspired by the song “6 Little Ducks”

I love it when my charges come up to me and ask to do make something specific.  Which is exactly what happened with this one. YC and I were upstairs reading together with my iTunes playing in the background, when the song ‘6 Little Ducks That I Once Knew’ came on. In case you haven’t heard of the song it goes:

“Six little ducks that I once knew,
Fat ones, skinny ones, fair ones too,
But the one little duck with the feathers on his back,
He ruled the others with his quack, quack, quack.”

My charge seemed fascinated with this song and wanted to listen to it over and over again. She then suddenly turned round to me and asked if we could make a duck! So we made these paper plate ducks.

Make sure you follow my paper plate craft board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own little duck you will need:

  • Paper plate
  • Yellow paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Feathers
  • Glue
  • Pens
  • Paper
  • Straws
  • Tape
  • Scissors

Paint the paper plate and fold it in half.

While it is drying cut out the head of the duck and paint it yellow. Then stick it onto the paper plate. Once dry draw on your ducks face.

Glue feathers onto your ducks back.

Cut your straws to their desired length and then, using the tape, stick them on the inside of your duck.
