A duck headband is the perfect craft for springtime, whether you’re making it in the comfort of your own home or using it in a classroom setting.
This duck paper hat is simple and easy to make. But it’s still a fun and rewarding craft for preschoolers and even older kids, especially if they happen to love animals.
MORE ANIMAL HEADBANDS:
Are you studying farm animals in your classroom? A duck coloring crown is a great way to keep those little hands busy while helping them learn more about the real animal behind the craft.
To shake things up, you could print out a list of duck facts for children to read while they work on the craft. Or have them learn a duct fact to recite while wearing their new hat after their project is complete!
For example, did you know that ducks can be found everywhere in the world, except Antarctica? Or that ducks have waterproof feathers that allow them to swim on the water without damaging them? Check out more duck facts here.
Our template comes with two great options: a colored duck or a black and white duck for personalized coloring. This particular craft can help with fine motor skills, as it requires cutting and (if you use the black and white template) coloring.
If you choose the color-it-yourself option, you could encourage students to base the color scheme on real-life ducks, who come in many more colors than simple yellow!
