How to play Pooh Sticks

When mysister first went to university she joined the Pooh Bear appreciation society and they introduced her to the wonderful game of pooh sticks.In the stories Pooh Bear races fir cones under a bridge to see who emerges
first but this has been adapted to sticks somewhere along the way. To play you simply:
  • Find a sunny day
  • gather up sticks (fun in itself)
  • and find a little bridge to stand on.
  • choose 1 stick each and be sure you know which one is yours
  • you count 1 2 3 go…and at the same time you all drop your
    sticks in the water then
  • race to the other side of the bridge to see whose
    emerges first.
    Then you can do it all over again and again and again!
