Five little ducks on stage


During lock down time, little Lucille and her mum, Sophie, from Lyon, have been making lots of music ~ and a puppet show. Here's their video of Five Little Ducks, showing how they did it. Well done, Sophie, the puppeteer. We love the stage you've built and your little duck puppets.


And well done, Sophie. We love your singing and your kitchen grater accompaniment.


Sophie and Lucille found a copy of Five Little Frogs in their local library and learned all the songs. This is our Playsongs version, sung by Nancy Kerr, in Five Little Frogs



Five little ducks went swimming one day, Over the pond and far away,

Mother Duck said, 'Quack quack quack,'

But only four little ducks came back.


Four little ducks went swimming one day, Over the pond and far away,

Mother Duck said, 'Quack quack quack,'

But only three little ducks came back…


Three little ducks went swimming one day…


Two little ducks went swimming one day…


One little duck went swimming one day,

Over the pond and far away,

Mother Duck said, 'Quack quack quack,'

And all of the five little ducks came back.


This is a lovely song to share on screen. You can make a puppet show like Sophie's, or you can also do the finger play actions. The thumb of one hand is Mother Duck. The thumb and fingers of your other hand are the five little baby ducks, who tuck down out of sight in each verse, then all come swimming back in the last.
