When you think of Easter animals we’re betting you normally think of 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!
Handprint Duckling Craft
- Colored cardstock or construction paper
- Duckling template (enter your email in the form at the end of this post to have the link sent to you)
Download the duckling template, print, and cut out the pieces you need.
Trace your child’s hand onto a yellow or brown piece of paper and cut the handprint out.
Glue the duckling’s head to the thumb of the handprint.
Place the bill halfway on the edge of the head and glue it in place.
Position the eye just to the left and slightly above the bill and glue it down.
Glue the cheek just below the eye.
Finish it off by gluing the legs to the bottom and back of the handprint duck body.
Can you believe how easy this craft is?! It’s great for little kids!
