Rubber Duck Grid Game

Have you heard the story of the 28,000 Rubber Ducks that fell off a shipping container in 1992 and got free in the ocean?  Their story is recorded whimsically in Eric Carle's book "10 Little Rubber Ducks."  The story also inspired my latest printable- a duck grid game!

Help your opponent capture the lost duckies by calling out the coordinates of where the ducks might be hiding.  To play the game, set up the board like battleship by printing off 4 copies of the grid and gluing them to some file folders.  I prefer to laminate the boards so we can use a white board marker to mark out the hits and misses on the top grid.  If you don't laminate them, the players can write lightly with pencil and then erase them when the game is done.


Cut out the rubber duckies and laminate them.  Use as they are or glue them onto 1" wood disks for added durability and playability.  Miniature rubber ducks could also be used, especially if you can find Safari Ltd Good Luck mini ducks (that would be the ultimate).  Each player should put 5-10 ducks on their board however they desire.  Then, they take turns naming a coordinate to guess where the other person's ducks are hiding.


Play until all the ducks are caught or only play to the first three or so.  Don't be surprised if your kids ask you to play this game often.  They love the one-on-one time with their parents and the challenge of keeping track of two things (their own ducks and their opponents) at one time.

Play this battleship for beginners and help your young elementary child practice math coordinates and taking turns.  Folder game is easy to store flat and the mini rubber ducks can go in an Altoid tin.  Fun for the whole family!
