DIY Felt Board Story Five Little Ducks

For making this felt board story you will need yellow felt for ducklings and withe for mother duck. You will also need some orange or darker yellow for their noses. I make wings in same colour but you actually can use any colour you have on hand.

Instructions:

After you download and print out Free Template Five Little Ducks transfer pattern on to felt and cut all the pieces. You may use freezer paper for easier process, I explained how to perfectly cut felt  in one of my previous posts.  Use hot glue (carefully not to burn your hands) to put ducks together and story can begin (safer option is felt glue)

Over the hills and far away

but only four little ducks came waddling back…

and all five ducks came waddling back.

At the beginning place mother duck and all five ducks on the felt board. If you yet don’t have felt board you can easily make one in just five minutes and for just few dollars.  As you sing and come to the part with four ducks, remove one duck from the board. Same thing do when you come to tree, two and one duck. And in the end put back all five ducks.

Your toddler will  enjoy this Five Little Ducks play and will love to sing with you.

    Place the 5 Little Ducks Story Mat on a table and allow children to participate in retelling and counting down as the story is read.
