Today's Craft: Paper Plate Duck

The kids had been pestering me to do more crafts with them so we went to the bookshop over the weekend and bought some new coloured construction papers to add to our art supplies collection. We have a cupboard just for our art supplies. We call it the craft cupboard. Whenever we want to do any craft, they will ask me to go and look in the art cupboard.

Today, they wanted to do a paper plate duck craft. This is really easy. All we needed were some paper plates and our colour construction papers. The kids traced their hands and cut them out to make the duck's tails. Then they drew in the eyes. I helped them cut out the feet and faces and stuck them onto the ducks.

Then they wanted to draw in some duck feed. (Thats what those dots on the paper plates are for in case you are wondering. Lol! The paper plate ducks can stand and rock. Cool!

  1. Hi, this is my first time reading your blog and it's interesting!

    I hope to gain more tips/information about parenting from your site.

  2. Ling,
    Thanks for dropping by my blog. :)

  3. oh thanks for sharing the craft. Maybe got time can try out with faythe this weekend

  4. i did this before, but how did u get the duck so shiny?

  5. THEY'RE ADORABLE!! I don't have any kids but i'll be trying this out for sure. As for the shine I believe there's a clear paint you can get at craft stores to give it a shine but i'm not positive and make sure you check on the health warnings first!

  6. I think the plate is yellow right??
    Nice craft! Thanks for sharing... will try with my girl one day. :)

  7. mumsgather, that's really clever! Alas, my children are all grown up now, if not I can do that to amuse them. Well, next time I am roped in to organise children's parties, I know what to do. Thanks.
