With Crayola® Scissors, cut construction paper to fit the bottom of a recycled box. Using Crayola Colored Pencils, sketch the Boston skyline. Color it in with Crayola Washable Markers and Multicultural Markers. Use Crayola Oil Pastels for the sky if you wish. Use a Crayola Glue Stick to attach this background to the bottom of the box.
On another paper, draw the foreground. Color the Boston Public Garden and its pond. Lay the box on its side. Glue foreground paper onto the side of the box that is lying flat.
On recycled file folders or cardboard, sketch the mother and father ducks, eight ducklings, and any other objects from the story such as the swan boats, bridges, and weeping willows. Color them, cut them out, and glue them into the diorama. Retell the story to younger children, family or friends.
