Give my daughter a river, and we play poohsticks! A game first played by Christopher Robin and Winnie the Pooh -A game for two players or more, in the traditional version of poohsticks the participants must drop a stick simultaneously on the upstream side of a bridge and run to the other side. The winner is the player whose stick first appears on the other side of the bridge. Alternatively, players may decide upon a starting point on a river and a finish line further downstream. The winner is the player whose stick first passes the finishing point. In our case, we use petals!
