When doing activities on the floor we like to set them up on a large tuff tray to avoid damaging the carpet and to contain any mess.

5 Little Ducks Activity

Before getting stuck into the '5 Little Duck' activities for babies suggested below begin by singing the nursery rhyme with your baby or toddler. You could read the book, sing together, have the nursery rhyme playing in the background or watch it on youtube. 

If you are doing this activity with toddlers you might also like to make a 5 little ducks craft.

Babies love water play and you can't do a duck activity without including water! Water play for babies really is the best. Babies and toddlers love splashing in water and getting themselves soaked. Add in a few ducks and they will have so much fun. 

To set this activity up we got out our tuff tray (to protect the floor), put down a towel (blue to represent the blue pond) and added water to a small glass tray.

We added our little ducks and then got playing! You might want to only add 5 little ducks, we decided to add all of ours. Ollie (aged 11 months) was really curious to see what had been set up. He was a little cautious to begin with but before long he was splashing away.

We sang the song 5 little ducks as we made the ducks swim across the pond, making one disappear each time. If doing this activity with toddlers you could count the ducks.
