This duck rabbit craft also goes great with the book “Duck Rabbit” by Amy Krouse Rosenthal. You can read the story and then create the craft with students for a great literacy connection.
For this duck activity, you will need a white piece of cardstock with the optional duck/rabbit template, yellow and orange paint, crayons, a yellow feather, and an optional cotton ball.

Bubble Painting Tips for Success
For this project, you will need to use acrylic yellow and orange paints. You will need to paint the two separate layers and let them dry before working on the rabbit side so this craft may need to be worked on a few separate times.
Included below is an optional template for the duck and bunny crafts. You can choose to use this or freehand your own. Cardstock works best for this as the paint may make normal printer paper curl up.
Be sure to paint the duck template before you cut out it out. This will help to prevent the edges from curling up as well as make it easier to ensure you get the whole thing filled without making a mess on the surface behind the template.
