Paper Plate Duck

Celebrate Springtime with a cute yellow duck project! Bring them to the pond with your stale bread to feed the ducks!

Ages: 3 and up


  • paper plate
  • yellow construction paper
  • orange construction paper
  • yellow paint
  • scissors
  • paint brush
  • crayon or marker
  • glue
  • google eyes (optional)
(Help kids with any steps as needed.)
Paint the entire back of the paper plate yellow. While it dries, trace your child’s hands on the yellow paper (this will be for the duck’s tail). Also, draw a circle on the yellow paper for the duck’s head. Cut out the hands and head. On orange paper, draw a triangle for the beak and two webbed feet (in the shape of tulips) that are connected by a 1″X 3″ strip of paper (see picture). Cut out the beak and feet pieces. To glue the beak onto the duck’s face, fold the paper edge down about a 1/4 of an inch. Glue the part that is folded under so that the beak sticks out. Draw eyes or glue on google eyes. Once the paper plate is dry, fold it in half with the yellow side facing out. Then glue or staple one of the yellow cut-out hands onto the back side of the duck and the other hand onto the front side of the duck. Next, glue or staple the head in place. Finally, glue or staple the feet on both sides of the plate, allowing the middle strip to keep the duck standing up. Now, start quacking!
