Rubber Duckies Don’t Say Quack by Carol Nicklaus
For young children, set out a blanket with child-safe rubber duckie toys on it.
If weather permits, a pool or beach party is perfect for this theme. You can also set up various sizes of inflatable pools and a sprinkler (some even spray bubbles along with the water for added fun).
Use big yellow sand pails with shovels as snack bowls.
Galvanized buckets with yellow floating candles and rubber ducks make for easy decor (if you have young children at the party, make sure to add only a little bit of water with adult supervision).
Lots of rubber duckies – float them in your swimming pool if you are having a pool party. You can also put a large blow up duck in the pool.
Use a duck candy mold, put lemonade in it and freeze it for little yellow duck ice cubes.
Serve duck shaped cookies and Oreos dipped in blue to look like bubbles.
Use a cookie cutter in a duck shape to make “duck burgers” & duck shaped ice cream (by using the square single serve ice cream bars).
Or just serve duck shaped peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and blue jello.
Be sure to have plenty of Goldfish crackers on hand as well.
Use colored (yellow or blue) metal pails. Fill with:
- Bubble bath
- Wash cloth hanging over the side
- Rubber duckies
- Yellow duck PEZ machines
You could also give a sippy cup with the child’s name painted on it and rubber ducky stickers for extra decoration. Use that ducky cookie cutter to trace a ducky shape, cut it out & punch a hole in it to thread ribbon for the party favor tags.
