Make your own ‘Hook a duck’ game

Every time we went to a fair when my son was little he would spend ages happily playing ‘hook a duck’ games. In the end I decided to have a go at making him his very own hook a duck game, it turned out to be incredibly cheap and easy to make.

All you need are:

  • Rubber ducks
  • Screw in hooks
  • Screw in eyelets
  • Bamboo canes or soft wood sticks
  • Waterproof glue
  • A washing up bowl or container.
  • Water

You simply hand screw the eyelets into the backs or heads of the rubber ducks. The more centrally they are places the more easily the duck will balence on the water. I would suggest also using a strong waterproof glue as well to make sure they are attached securely.

Next you carefully screw (and glue) the hooks into the end of your bamboo poles. Once the hooks are attached the children can decorate the sticks with paint, stickers and or ribbon.

All you then need is a washing up bowl (or container) filled with water and voila you are done and ready to play. It really is that simple.

Tip: You can find cheap eyelets and hooks in your local household/hardware stores, they often come in a bag together.
