So first we'll do the ducks and then giveaway at the end
So maybe you remember that set of ceramic ducks on the wall of your Grandma's house, I sure do!
This is a set on painted cardboard which you could also make out of paper......
So let's get started.
First up the set of three:
- templates, optional as you can always make your own but if you want mine
- Large duck Template#1 so this one is so big I have to give it to you in 2 parts
- Large duck Template #2
- Medium duck Template #3
- Small duck Template #4
- thin cardboard (cereal box)
- pencil, scissors
- paint, I used acrylic
- Mod podge to seal
- wire/tape for hanging
Add a hanger on the back.
Now you can easily make these out of posterboard instead and get the kids to use pastel or colored pencil.
Next up Handprint Ducks:
- white wc paper
- blue tempera disk paint
- template, you can use mine, Handprint Duck Template #5
- colored paper
- brown liquid tempera paint
- googly eye, optional
- pastels or colored pencils
Paint in your blue background with tempera disk paint.
For the eye you can glue on a googly one or make one out of black paper and a hole punch.
Dip hand in to paint and then make print on the paper.
We had our thumbs closest to the body which means you have to get both hands messy. (Oh what fun!!)
Some great looking DUCKS!
Incidently I got carried making templates so here are a few other ducks you could use:
Template #6 a
Template #6 b
