Mo Willems’ Pigeon and Duckling Christmas Ornaments

diy printables lesson planner templates

We are huge fans of the Pigeon books from Mo Willems so I had to make a set of Mo Willems’ Pigeon and Duckling Christmas Ornaments to go along with them. These are kid made ornaments that my son, who is in the first grade, created. He is very proud of them.

I had to hold back my impulse to trim the edges and smooth them out but he did an awesome job. He did everything from start to finish which is pretty cool if you ask him. They are his own and they are up on the Christmas tree.

Pigeon and Duckling Ornament Instructions

My son used a drinking cup to trace circles onto a piece of paper for the head and whites of the eyes. There were 4 different sizes because the Duckling’s head is smaller. For the colored parts of the eyes, he just eyeballed them and cut them straight out of the felt and I cleaned it up a bit.

He cut out the circles from the paper and then placed them onto the felt. I pinned them down and he used a black marker to trace around it.

He then cut out the circles from the felt. We did the same for all the other pieces like the beak as well.

We used craft glue to glue all of the pieces together and then I poked a hole through them with our ornament hooks and ta da! There you have it, super easy for your kiddo to put together.

Pardon the mess in the background, that’s what my house looks like during school. My daughter is just beside him playing with our dinosaur felt activity.

    1. I feel that way too but let them do it their own way. Then they’re so proud of their work.
