Duck Races

Pooh sticks with ducks! We've been training up those fantastically coloured plastic bath ducks to championship speed for a couple of seasons now (it's all in the diet)... Pack them in your rucksuck so you can have a race on walks.

They've all got names (Funky, Camouflage, Spotty, Choccy...) and what's strange is that one (that's Spotty) almost always seems to win.

This is the easiest game in the world to play. Simultaneously drop your racing ducks into a shallow, flowing stream from a bridge or log and see which one gets to the finishing line first. Hint: catch the flow and try to avoid the eddies if you want to win.

You'll need someone in wellies with a big net to catch the ducks at the end.
