Step 1: Materialz
As i said you will need three things; a piece of paper, scissors, and a pencil.
Step 2: Fold #1
Fold the paper in half "hot dog style" (thats lengthwise).
Step 3: Fold #2
Next, fold the paper across itself, as shown.
Step 4: Folds #3 and 4
Fold the sides of the fold down leaving a little bit of space to get "wings."
Step 5: Cuts #1 and 2
You will notice that there is a triangular overlap on one of the wings. Cut along it. On the other wing, cut out a congruent triangle in the same place.
Step 6: The Face
Refold the bird in half, then draw eyes, nostrils and a beak on the triangular parts you cut out on both sides.
Step 7: Unfold
This the big finish! Just unfold the wings, and you have a duck! You may want to tape the head portion together... It looks weird if you don't.
Step 8: You're Done!!!
Congratulations! You now have your very own paper duck puppet! As you get better at making them, you can create a whole flock to share with your friends! Enjoy!
