Rubber Ducky Party Games: Easy and Fun Party Games

1- Duck Duck Goose (also known as The Mush Pot)

In this classic children’s game, kids sit down in a circle facing each other. One person is “it” and walks around the circle tapping people’s heads and saying whether they are a “duck” or a “goose”. Once someone is tapped as the “goose” they get up and try to catch the person that is “it” before they can get safely back to the spot where the new
“goose” was sitting.

If the goose is not able to do this, they become “it” for the next round and play continues. If they do tag the “it” person, the person tagged has to sit in the middle. Then the goose is now “it”. The person in the middle can’t leave until the someone else gets tagged, and they are replaced.

2 -Duck Races

Gather some fins (swim fins)

Have an area appropriate for the age of the child

A) Children put the fins on and race each other to the finish line., or

B) Have a cutest Waddle Contest-Child that waddles the best to the
finish line wins, or

C) Have a relay for the older kids- Make teams with however many children you have. One child from each team has to sit and put the fins (flippers) on and race around something (could be a chair) and go back to the start and trade fins with the next child, until all children on that team has gone, and first ones done win.

Note: You can also have the Children carry a “Duck Egg” on a spoon as they race each other.

3- Five Little Game is fun at any Party: You can adapt this Nursery Rhyme as a game
(this can be played with Miniature Ducks in a bucket or pool, finger puppets, or even the Children as the Ducklings).

Four little ducks went out one day, Over the hills and far away. Mother Duck called, “Quack, quack, quack”. But only three ducks came waddling back. Three little ducks went out one day, Over the hills and far away. Mother Duck called, “Quack, quack, quack”. But only two ducks came waddling back.

When you’re hosting an Halloween party it’s a requirement that you have plenty of sweets on hand. Candies for the favor bags, candies in pretty dishes on the table, candies hidden in pinatas and treasure chests and candies given as prizes during party games. Honestly, you can never have too many candies when it comes to Halloween parties.

Butterflies are pretty little creatures, so you don’t mind have them scattered all over your table or decorating the top of your cake. They’re not creepy looking like spiders or worms, so you don’t get that shiver running up and down your spine when a butterfly lollipop pokes it’s head out of your goodie bag.
