Activity:
*Cut out a rectangle out of the green paper, about 3 inches by 4 inches and cut the top in a fringe to make the Mamma duck’s grass. Glue it to the bottom left side of the blue construction paper and glue the Mamma duck so she’s sitting in the grass.


*Push a brass fastener through the bottom of each of the five little ducks and arrange them in a semi-circle on the blue paper. Poke the fasteners through the blue paper and attach.

*Cut a large semi-circle out of the green paper – large enough to cover the brass fasteners and bottoms of your little ducks. Cut the edges in a fringe to make the grassy hill for the little ducks. Only put a small amount of glue in the very center of the hill. You want to be able to rotate the ducks so that they can hide in the grass.
*Sing the "Five Little Ducks" song together and as each duck disappears, rotate it gently on the brass fastener so it "hides" under the grassy hill.

*Send us a picture of your kids and their singing the song with their craft we may post it to our site! info@mycalendarmaker.com.
