We LOVE the MeMeTales 5 Little Ducklings ebook. In fact, I think I like it more than Sweet P does!
If you're not familiar with The 5 Little Ducklings, it's an old rhyme that is often sung so I can't help but sing the words! I like to read the ebooks as well as listen to them - so this one gets sung (even the Farmer gets it stuck in his head) instead of read.
I knew I wanted to use felt (surprise, surprise!) to create the ducks and quickly whipped up some yellow ducks and a mama late one night. I used Sharpie for their eyes and a little orange piece of felt for the beak. I hot glued them together and wa-la! Instant ducklings.
- Mama duck on my finger, baby ducks on the bookshelf: she pulled one off and scooted them back and forth as we sang
- Mama duck on my finger, baby ducks on her hand: she flicked one off each time the mama called them back
- Mama and baby ducks on the bookshelf: she dropped the baby ducks on the floor as we sang
Sweet P wanted a grilled cheese for lunch so I made a mama duck with her 5 little babies! As she ate she'd say "There's only 4 now!" and we made up silly rhymes like "4 little duckies sitting looking so yummy! I ate one and now it's in my tummy!"
Baby ducks: Banana with raisin eyes and carrot hair and beak
Cloud/sun: Greek yogurt and carrot
