Duck Crafts for Kids: Kinder Duck

Step by Step Instructions for Our Kinder Duck

Step #1:

First we will start with our beak and feet. Use the orange craft foam and cut out a pair of feet. We decided to leave the two feet attached for easier gluing, and he stands a little better.

Cut out a beak, be sure to leave a lip on the bottom of the triangle. This will fold and create the top and bottom of its beak.

Step #2:

Cut out two lengths of your yellow pipe cleaner - approx 2 to 3 inches in length. Bend each of these into an M shape.

Cut a small length of the pipe cleaner and bend it into a W type shape. This will be a little feather for its head.

Step #3:

Glue your feet to the bottom of the kinder container. When gluing to plastic sometimes regular white glue can take a bit to set, if time is a constraint use a hot glue gun (with supervision).

Step #4:

Fold the beak in half. We found that scoring the bend helped it stay better. Glue this in the center of the kinder container (be sure it still opens).

Step #5:

Pick out two googly eyes that are a nice size for your duck. Glue them above the beak.

Step #6

Take your two M shaped pipe cleaners and twist the ends together. This will create your wings. Glue one on each side of your duck.

Step #7

Take your little feather bunch and glue it to the top of the duck's head.

Now that we have finished our duck crafts for kids we have an adorable little duckling!

Have fun and fill it with a little candy surprise.
