Make a duck, a cute little duck from felt. Make many ducklings for your kids and play together.
Materials you need:
-colorful felt (orange, yellow for ducks, white, brown, green for wings)
-needle and assorted thread
Draw a duck on a sheet of paper. Make the body and a wing.
Cut the paper pattern.
Fix it on the felt.
The beak is only a simple triangle.
First, sew the eye using a criss cross stitch.
Then sew the wing using overcast stitch.
Sew the both parts of the body using buttonhole stitch. Stuff lightly with polyfill.
Sew the beak too. Fasten off.
Your duck is ready. You can use them for playing with your kids: count, invent a story, sing Five Little Ducks ...
Here is one of my felt board for a counting book.
