Duck Themes and Activities

Sing About Ducks

5 Little Ducks
Five little ducks went out to play
Over the hill and far away
The mother duck said "Quack, Quack come back"
Four little ducks came running back
Four little ducks went out to play etc....

One little duck went out to play
Over the hill and far away
The mother duck said Quack,Quack come back
No little ducks came running back
The daddy duck said QUACK, QUACK COME BACK! (yell)
Five little ducks came running back (sing Quickly)

Six Little Ducks
Six little ducks that I once knew
Fat ones, skinny ones, fair ones, too
But the one little duck with the feather on his back
He led the others with a quack, quack, quack
Quack, quack, quack, quack, quack, quack
He led the others with a quack, quack, quack
Down to the river they would go
Wibble, wobble, wibble, wobble, to and fro
But the one little duck with the feather on his back
He led the others with a quack, quack, quack
Quack, quack, quack, quack, quack, quack
He led the others with a quack, quack, quack

Duck Games

Duck, Duck, Goose!
The Little Ducklings (act out actions)
All the little ducklings
Line up in a row.
Quack, quack, quack,
And away they go.
They follow their mother,
Waddling to and fro.
Quack, quack, quack
And away they go.
Down to the big pond
Happy as can be.
Quack, quack, quack
They are full of glee.
They jump in the water
And bob up and down,
Quack, quack, quack,
they swim all around.
All the little ducklings
Swimming far away.
Quack, quack, quack,
They'll play another day

Egg Hunt
One child is designated to be the parent duck and leaves the room or closes their eyes. Hide plastic eggs around the room. Have the "duck" return to find the eggs. The other children are ducklings, they are to Quack to help the seeker. Instruct children to quack louder when the parent duck is close to an egg.
