If you have a swimming pool and lots of teens together, throw in a couple of rubber ducks, and you can play Duck Thrust. Here’s how it works.
Put 3-4 players at one end of the pool and give them one rubber duck apiece. When you say go, they must use their nose to push the duck to the other end of the pool. They can also “blow” the duck forward; they just can’t bite the duck and swim to the other end with it in their mouths. Nor can they touch their duck with their hands or feet.
Further, the players can “distract” the other players by splashing water in their faces or splashing water toward their ducks to knock them backward. They just can’t actually TOUCH the other players or the other players’ ducks.
The first one to get his duck to touch the other end of the pool (obeying the rules) is the winner.
