Go duck crazy!

13 April 2011 by Alison

Many rows of blue rubber ducks

40,000 rubber ducks are ‘waddling’ around World Museum.

You may have seen that 40,000 blue rubber ducks have waddled their way onto display throughout World Museum. This is part of the annual Claire House Children’s Hospice sponsored Duck Race in association with Radio City’s Cash for Kids – you can sponsor a Claire House duck by buying tickets at the museum.

We’re celebrating the duck’s visit by putting on a weekend of free events. On Saturday 16 April and Sunday 17 April there are lots of great free activities to take part in.

Duck lovers – get creative and have a go at badge making, colouring, marbling eggs and making your own fluffy ducklings.

You egg heads can take part in our duck themed quiz. This session will also help you to identify the different species of ducks found in and around Merseyside.

Not only will there be rubber ducks there’ll also be real ducks that haven’t even hatched yet! Experts from Martin Mere Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust will be there over the weekend with their display of duck eggs and nest boxes. Children can also play a game to learn how a duckling develops inside an egg and watch a video of hatching ducklings.

So why not head over to World Museum and go quackers!
