Building up something creative from random, seemingly unrelated items is always a good and fun challenge. In our case some marshmallows and uncooked spaghetti will suffice for this purpose. Today we deliver you a quite extraordinary game: marshmallow spaghetti tower construction!
Marhsmallow challenges are quite popular in the US. There are quite a few simple, yet creative games you can do with this food. Chubby bunny for instance, where the task is to stuff more marshmallows into your mouth than your opponent. And saying out loud ‘chubby bunny’ at each marshmallows you put in your mouth. But the even better game in marshmallow challenges is marshmellow spaghetti tower construction.
Type of activity: indoor
Required time to play: 18 min.
Requires sports equipment investment? Nope
Best for: creativity boost, teamwork
The goal is to build the tallest marshmallow spaghetti tower using only these supplies within the limited timeframe. But there’s a catch: the marshmallow has to be at the very top of the spaghetti tower, plus the whole structure has to stand on its own – that means no hands or other objects can support it!
If you wish, after some rounds you can make the challenge more difficult by adding marshmallow spaghetti tower’s design, as a decisive factor. Then, the absolute winner is the tallest and fanciest marshmallow spaghetti tower.
And think outside the box! 😉
At the end this is how it should look like:
