Spaghetti & Marshmallow Challenge

Okay, so I guess I have time for one more.  Thanks to this post which contains an amazing list of different team building challenges, I did this activity for the second year in a row this week.  The kids, of course, loved it.

This team built the tallest structure that remained standing on its own!

The teams were challenged to build the tallest structure using the noodles and marshmallows–nothing else.  Click on this link to my pinterest board.  It will take you to the top post where you can print out her list of different challenges to try each week!

The first month of school, I try to complete one challenge a week.  I’m truly trying to teach the kids never to give up and it’s OKAY TO FAIL!!!   See the sign I made (can’t believe I actually made it–so super easy.  I love the paint pen!).

Bought the letters and paint pen at Target, glued it all own and voila!

The kids were so scared at first glance, but calmed down after I explained.  Next sign needed…. Mistakes are proof you’re trying!

Have a good night!
