Easter & Jesus: Duck Pond Lesson Plan

Story: The Easter Story
Song: He’s Got the Whole World in his Hands
Activity: Egg Rescue- Get any small to medium box or storage container, painter’s or masking tape, plastic eggs or small balls, a couple of spoons (large or small depending on your Duck). Place eggs\balls in a box or container. Create several criss-cross patterns on top of box with tape. Give your Duck a spoon, and let them fish out the objects out of the box. If they get bored, add some small toys to the mix! Great exercise for fine motor control.

Activity: Chalk Fun!- Get outside & color your driveway, sidewalk, trees, fences, etc.! Raining? Chalk color on dark colored construction paper!

Art: Foil Egg with Sharpies- Warning! Get out a bib or old shirt! Sharpies are permanent markers. Cut egg shape out of cardboard or cardstock. Cover egg-shape with foil shinny side up. Secure back with a little tape. Let your Duck color egg. That’s it! Water-based markers will not work with this project.
