Flannel Friday: 6 Ducklings

Welcome back to Flannel Friday!

Today I have some ducklings for you!

I actually made these as visuals for a training video I made for our staff, but you could use them for “6 Little Ducks That I Once Knew” or “5 Little Ducks Went Out to Play.” (or 4 calling birds? 3 French hens?)

All the pieces are laid out on this pdf. The patterns are my own; I spent some time looking at photos of ducklings while freehand cutting shapes out of felt until they looked okay, so there’s no right or wrong way to put these little guys together. You can use the printout as an actual pattern, and cut out the pieces and tape them to your felt, or you can use them as visual reference and just eyeball it as you cut your own pieces. Then have fun deciding where their wings and feet and beaks go!

    I am jealous you got a blue background on your Storytime felt board. Mine was Cheeto orange! The blue is so much more useful. WHO DO I COMPLAIN TO ABOUT FREE STUFF!??!

    Do like a duck does Quack Quack Quack! Those are adorable duckies. Duck stories/songs are some of my favorite.

    They are felt! I just use the inexpensive acrylic/eco felt from the big craft stores. Have fun!
