Six Little Ducks
Six little ducks;
That I once knew;
Fat ones, skinny ones, Fair ones, too;
But the one little duck;
With the feather on his back;
He led the others with his quack, quack, quack;
Quack, quack, quack,
Quack, quack, quack;
He led the others with his quack, quack, quack;
Soap Bubble Art
Materials: 1 - 2 Tbs. Tempera Paint
1 Tbs. dishwashing liquid
1/2 cup water
White or light-colored construction paper
Plastic drinking straws
1. Mix first 3 ingredients together and pour into a metal pan.
2. Have kids dip one end of a plastic straw into the mixture and blow gently to make bubbles. Stop blowing once the bubbles reach almost to the edge of the pan.
3. Gently place a piece of construction paper on top of the bubbles and hold it in place for a few seconds. As bubbles pop, they will leave marks on the paper.
4. Remove paper and set it aside to dry.
If your group is very young, you might opt to just blow bubbles for them. Here is a recipe for Bubble Soap:
1 tsp glycerin
1/2 cup liquid detergent
1/2 cup water
Directions: Mix glycerin with liquid detergent and water. Gather bubble wands to make bubbles galore!
