Toddler Activities: Duck Week


I decided that at 16 months, we would start teaching Landon about different farm animals. He currently knows bird, dog and cat. 

I got these farm animal figurines at a learning store, but you can buy them on amazon, at Walmart and I've seen them at target. 

I also pull all of our books with ducks in them to read for the week. Any book with ducks in it works. So I introduced a few different ducks. 
Remember to ask questions and talk about ducks. "Landon, what is this? It's a duck", "a duck goes quack quack" etc


By the end of the day, he caught on about ducks, so we went to feed ducks at the lake and he loved it. Now he can tell the difference between ducks and birds... We also went to the pumpkin patch where they had ducks.. And he kept pointing and screaming "Duck!! Duck!!"
