Suggested Activities:

• Bible Story Activities:

• Color Activities:  
Color Handprints  Handprint Wall - Add a black handprint to your color wall by painting the child's hand and stamping it onto a piece of paper.  Write the name of the color on the handprint.  Display it at the child's level to point and discuss the colors.

• Animal Activities:  
- Crumple up the Duck worksheet.  Spread out and paint with black watercolor. 
- A duck says "quack."
- Find pictures of ducks in the books that you read.
- If available, go to a local lake or pond and feed the ducks. 
- Sign "bath" and discuss how the ducks get baths a lot. 

• Sign Language:
I specifically liked this sign as I could quietly tell our children "no" without others hearing. 

• Book of the Week Ideas:  
- Point and count the ducks in the illustrations.
- As the book progresses, sing each verse in a "sadder" voice.
- Sing the book as a song and create a fingerplay:
Number - show the number of ducks on your fingers
Over the hills - move hand in front of you like you are going up and down over hills
Far away - move opposite hand in front of you in same motion
Quack - move hand like a duck's beak saying "quack"

• Fine Motor Skill:  
Peg Puzzles Put together peg puzzles.  Encourage the child to pick up the puzzle piece using his thumb and index finger.

• Gross Motor Skill:  
Scarf Throw a nylon scarf in the air and catch it.  Because it floats down slowly, catching a nylon scarf is a wonderful way to help children learn to catch items thrown to them.
