My duck pond
Children will love adding these tiny ducks to their pond.
- Gather your material. You will need a paper plate, brown pipe cleaners, white glue and/or hot glue, three small yellow pompoms, three star-shaped necklace beads, green necklace beads, a brown crayon, scissors, a hole-punch, a piece of blue Fun Foam, a piece of green Fun Foam, and a black permanent marker.
- Cut a circle out of the blue Fun Foam and glue it in the centre of the paper plate. Use the brown crayon to color the contour of the plate. Cut it to give it an irregular shape (the banks of the pond).
- Cut a strip of green Fun Foam. Use the scissors to cut strands of grass as shown.
- Glue the strip of grass at one end of the pond, folding it under the paper plate.
- Cut two brown pipe cleaners in two. Slide five green beads onto each pipe cleaner piece before folding each tip to represent cattails.
- Use the hole-punch to make holes along the edge of the paper plate. Insert the other end of each pipe cleaner piece in the hole and twist them together under the plate to hold them in place. Turn the plate over and arrange the cattails as you wish.
- On each yellow pompom, glue a star-shaped orange bead to represent a beak. Use the permanent marker to draw two eyes on each pompom.
- Simply glue the ducks in the pond to complete your project.
