When you think of Easter animals we’re betting you normally think chicks, sheep, and of course, bunnies.

But there’s one Easter animal that’s usually left out – ducklings!

They’re super cute, and dare we say even cuter than fluffy chicks! For this reason, we created a cute duck handprint craft.

It’s an easy Easter craft for kids that’s not only fun to create but is also quick to make and doesn’t involve any paint.

Be sure to download the free template to make it even easier! This is a fun craft to make at home or at school!
