Duck Songs & Rhymes

Five Little Ducks

5 little ducks went out to play (hold up 5 fingers)
Over the hills and far away (arc hand up and over- shade eyes)
Mother duck called “quack, quack, quack” (clap hands)
And 4 little ducks came waddling back (hold up 4 fingers)

repeat counting down until…
1 little duck went out one day (hold up 1 finger)
Over the hills and far away, (arc hand up and over- shade eyes)
Mother duck called “quack, quack, quack” (clap hands)
but no little ducks came waddling back

Mother duck went out one day,
over the hills and far away (arc hand up and over- shade eyes)
Mother duck called “quack, quack, quack” (clap hands)
and 5 little ducks came waddling back! (hold up 5 fingers)

Ducks on the Bus

The ducks on the bus go quack quack quack!
Quack quack quack! Quack quack quack!
The ducks on the bus go quack quack quack!
All through the town!

The ducks on the bus go flap flap flap!….
The ducks on the bus go waddle waddle waddle!….
The ducks on the bus go Quack Quack Quack!….

There was a little Ducky
source: Library Storytime

I had a little ducky,
He lived in a box.
He swam in a puddle,
He climbed on the rocks.
He snapped at a mosquito,
He snapped at a flea,
He snapped at a minnow,
And he snapped at me!
He caught the mosquito,
He caught the flea,
He caught the minnow,
But he couldn’t catch me!

Duck Craft

I’ve actually never really done a craft directly from a book I don’t think so I thought I would change that up for today!

This was inspired by Duck! Rabbit! we made our own “Is it a duck or is a rabbit?” puppets!

I just traced a smaller version of the outline off the internet and cut them out then the kids could decorate how they wanted.

And so… a homemade GIF just for you :)
