I surfed the net and found this yellow duck craft, but instead of using brushes to paint the paper plate, we used a toy rubber duck.
Have the child grab the duck by the head and plop the duck in the yellow puddle. They paint the white, non-coated paper plate by tapping and swirling the paint all over to cover the plate with pretty 'sunshine' yellow paint. Little hands can easily hold on to the duck without getting much paint on their fingers.
Note--- I folded a crease in the beak and each of the feet. the child puts glue on the creased 'tab' and places the parts on their duck.

A few of my favorite books to read on Duck Day are:
One Duck Stuck
Make Way for Ducklings
Have fun painting ducks with a puddle of paint and enjoy spring with your little ones!
