If you are familiar with Winnie the Pooh you have probably heard of the game called Pooh Sticks.  The House At Pooh Corner by A. A. Milne describes the game.  Apparently, A. A. Milne invented the game to play with his son Christopher Robin Milne.

To play, all you need a bridge over running water.  Each player gets a stick or some sort of organic material.  When everyone is ready all players drop their stick at once.  All players then rush over to the other side of the bridge and watch to see which stick comes through first.  My boys have enjoyed this game since they were toddlers.

Our house backs onto a large park with a trail.  Today we explored the trail and passed by several bridges perfect for the game of Pooh Sticks.  Of course, we couldn’t pass up a game of Pooh Sticks or should I say several games of Pooh Sticks.  While we will never go so far as to enter the World Pooh Sticks Championships in England, we will enjoy our little games when we have occasion to play.
