Letter D Duck Craft

As I was planning our letter D theme, I saw this duck craft and knew it was the one for us! Erik has never been a big fan of coloring so instead we decided to paint our duck. We started out revisiting our Dot Painting technique from a day or two before, but Erik just wanted to dive in and the cotton swabs quickly fell by the wayside. 
After our letter D had dried, we cut it out and glued it onto a fresh sheet of paper. Great chance for some fine motor skills!
I gave Erik the duck's body parts (which I had cut out of construction paper), and he glued those on as well.
Last, but not least, the feathers! We found these at WalMart for cheap, and there are lots left to play with.
We came up with a short description for his duck so we could incorporate some lower case D's into this, and then hung him on the well next to our other ABC animals.
