Duck Pond


Submitted by: Angie Ware

This is a fun way to help children identify letters or numbers.


  • To help children with letter/number recognition, along with taking turns

Before You Start:
Cut simple duck shapes from yellow contact paper (or laminated construction paper). Attach each duck to the side of a juice box. Cut out a square piece of contact paper and attach to the opposite side of the box. Using a permanent marker, print a letter or number on each square piece of paper. Place the boxes in a large container or kiddie pool that is half full of water (ducks faced up).

Let’s Get Started!
Step 1.
Have the children take turns picking a duck from the water.

Step 2.
Ask the children to identify the letter/number on the bottom side of the box.

Step 3.
If the child correctly identifies it, he/she points to a friend.

Step 4.
That child must quack like a duck.
