I’ll start with the disclaimer that I did find a very similar craft available for purchase. Working for a public library with very limited financial resources, I created my own templates.
The beginning of November seemed a little too soon for Thanksgiving themed crafts. With the election coming up, I thought this would be a fun way to get the kids involved. We even staged a mock election between Duck and Farmer Brown (characters from the book).
I traced the outlines of the duck head and bill. Then I used a sharpie to add the eyes and nostrils. I have attached templates for the head, bill and tie. I had a variety of scrapbook paper that we used for the bow ties.
You will need:
White and Orange Paper
Stars (I used a star-shaped paper punch. I love paper punches!)
Large Craft Sticks
