This week I read books by Jan Thomas during story time. I was looking for an activity to go after Pumpkin Trouble. I made 5 felt pumpkins intending to use them with counting rhymes. Then I decided to make a duck to hide under one of the pumpkins...a guessing game for the children. They loved it. They wanted me to hide the duck so many times that we never got to use the counting rhymes.
I used a coloring sheet I found online as a template for my pumpkins. The duck came from Microsoft Office clipart. I added the detail and outlines with puff paint.
