    They were all enjoying a wonderful time in the park. Young children were hopping ans skipping about,and some were spinning round and round until they were so dizzy they slipped over. The park keeper was busy trimming the hedge,and the ducklings were swimming in the pond.

    I have highlighted all the verbs in which the last consonant has had to be doubled. I think that is what you needed.
