It is #RhymeTime again and this fortnight’s Nursery Rhyme is “Five Little Ducks”. After the success of our DIY Felt Board to re-enact the Nursery Rhyme I have been looking for other ways. This time however, instead of taking the ducks off of the board I wanted to find a way that Adam could turn something to make the duck disappear. I finally found inspiration in the unlikely combination of a Pringle tube and a pool noddle.
To make our five little ducks pool noodle I used a sharp knife to cut five rings out of a recycled Pringle tin and tidied up the edges using scissors.
I wrapped dark blue felt around each one and attached with super glue. To make 5 little ducks I used the same template as when I created them for our DIY Felt Board and made a larger version for Mummy duck. The five little ducks were super glued to the Pringle rings.
Whilst the glue was drying I created a pool noodle stand. I cut a blue pool noodle to the required length and super glued the Mummy duck on the left hand side.
I finally found a way to keep the pool noodle in place by using our Pipe Pieces set. Our activity kit came from Imagido and includes 64 interlocking pipes. They were perfect for keeping pool noodle slightly above the ground. The Pipe Pieces kept the pool noddle in place but enables the Pringle rings to turned around.
Adam thoroughly enjoyed using our Five Little Ducks pool noddle to sing the Nursery Rhyme. It brought the rhyme to life and was a great tool to get him to count how many ducks were left and how many had swam away.
