    I need some inspiration from you expert chaps, Ive been tasked with creating a "Hook a Duck" game for a kids party, Im intending to use a paddling pool to float the plastic ducks in, but to make it a little more interesting for the little ones, im looking for a way to "move" the water around somehow so the ducks dont remain static. My first thought is some sort of fish tank pump submeresed in the pool to agitate the water. Any ideas ??

    If its not for too long, a garden hose placed at the circumference, would make the water go around.

    Some sort of jet at the end, will make it more effective.
