We decided we were going to do our own duck race! We bought a big box of 50 rubber ducks in ‘Home Bargains’ and set about numbering them up and decorating them. We made a ‘duck race’ sign and a finish line using an old sheet. We then headed out to the stream not forgetting our nets to catch our racing ducks at the end…
Here’s how we got on..
Once we had finished our prep we were off!!
We took a hat full of chocolate gold coins for the winners..
We set up our finish line on a footbridge..
Then we headed to the other end of the stream to start our race..
AND THEY WERE OFF!!!
We waited for them to cross the finish line before setting about fishing them out…
And we counted them up yo make sure we hadn’t lost any..
Some of us got some serious booties retrieving them 🙂
For the £5 it cost for our ducks we had a fab afternoon, we finished we a picnic on the river bank.
