Five Little Ducks glove puppets

 

Five Little Ducks

I needed something visual to take to the Nursery kids on Sunday.  I already have a glove puppet with ‘Five Cheeky Monkey’s’ on it, but I had bought it.  I was up for a bit of a challenge today and decided to try my hand at making something I could use.

Here’s the end result.  It isn’t perfect, but it IS after all, only for the little 18 month olds to quack along to.

If you would like to make your own, you can make a simple pattern of your hand by tracing around your fingers, then making them super wide for sewing purposes.

I cut ducklings and the mother duck out of this template: Duck template, hot glued the duck pieces together, then hot glued them onto my glove.

The song is:

Five little ducks
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
Mother duck said
“Quack, quack, quack, quack.”
But only four little ducks came back.

Four little ducks
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
Mother duck said
“Quack, quack, quack, quack.”
But only three little ducks came back.

Three little ducks
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
Mother duck said
“Quack, quack, quack, quack.”
But only two little ducks came back.

Two little ducks
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
Mother duck said
“Quack, quack, quack, quack.”
But only one little duck came back.

One little duck
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
Mother duck said
“Quack, quack, quack, quack.”
But none of the five little ducks came back.

Sad mother duck
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
The sad mother duck said
“Quack, quack, quack.”
And all of the five little ducks came back.
