SUPPLIES FROM THE BAG
- 3 Large popsicle sticks
- Elmer’s glue
- Medium pompom
- Yellow construction paper
- Glue stick
- Yellow paint
- 2 Googly eyes
- Scraps of yellow, orange and purple (optional) construction paper
Step 1: Glue the frame
- Glue the 3 popsicle sticks together at the ends to form a triangle frame
- Allow the glue to dry thoroughly
- *You may want to complete this step the night before. And make extras so that you are ready for more crafting!
Step 2: Paint
- Place the triangle frame on the newspaper and squeeze a little yellow paint on the newspaper too.
- Pinch the pompom with the clothespin to form a “paint brush”
- Allow the paint to dry
Step 3: Cut and glue
- First, place the painted triangle on the yellow construction paper and trace around the outside.
- Now draw a second triangle inside the one you have drawn, about 1/4″ in
- Last, cut that triangle out and glue it onto the back of the frame.
- *For kids that are just learning to cut simple shapes, go over the pencil mark with a sharpie to make it easier to cut.
Wondering if your little one is ready to use scissors? Here is a good place to start answering that question…

Step 4: Add the details
- Cut out a couple of details…
- Fold a small piece of orange paper in half and cut out a bill shape so that the mouth opens. Just a ‘U’ shape works fine.
- Cut a half circle about 1/2″ across and a zigzag on top for the little fluff at the top of the duck’s head
- My duck is also wearing a bow tie that is cut from purple paper, but feel free to make your own accessories! Your duck should be as unique as you are! Cut out whatever you want it to wear and use whatever colors you like best.
- Glue all of the details that you have made in place using the glue stick and add the eyes too.
- Finally, use your marker to add little details as you like too.
