DUCK RACING

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..

For the £5 it cost for our ducks we had a fab afternoon, we finished we a picnic on the river bank.
