Five little ducks

What you need

A nice and cosy area in your house, and your lovely singing voice! Watch our ‘Sing along with Katy & Paige’ video and sing the 5 little ducks song along with us! 

Optional extra: you can also use five small-sized objects (doesn’t have to be little ducks) to practice your early math skills.


The ‘five little ducks’ song is a popular nursery rhyme that helps children recognise the numbers 1-5 and teach early math skills.

The experience

Listen to the song, or watch our video via our website. Talk with your toddler about the noises that little ducks make! You can even find 5 of the same, or similar objects for this song to be the ducks – this will enhance the activity as you work together on developing your child’s early maths skills.

As the song or video plays, encourage your child to count to five along with the song, and of course, to sing along using their beautiful voice!


Lyrics: Five little ducks went out one day, over the hill and far away

Mother duck said, “Quack, quack, quack, quack’’, but only four little ducks came back.
