National Puddle Jumping Championships at Slimbridge Wetland Centre


We think that this sounds like a fun thing to do if you have children and want to get out and about during the holidays.

This February half term (11th -19th February), children of all ages are being encouraged to grab their wellies, get outside and join in the puddle jumping championship being held at Slimbridge Wetland Centre

This year WWT’s new children’s character, Dusty Duck is joining in the fun and helping kids create the biggest, craziest splash possible.

Dusty was exclusively designed by the world-famous Aardman studios to help celebrate WWT’s 70th anniversary by getting children closer to nature.

Children will compete against each other to see who can produce the biggest splash from their puddle jump.  They will also be judged on their enthusiasm and jumping style.  Daily winners will be announced throughout the half term and some lucky ‘super-splashers’ will receive a fantastic prize from Dusty Duck himself! Every contestant will receive a ‘splashtastic’ sticker to acknowledge their puddle jumping skills.
