Marshmallow Tower Icebreaker Game
For this game, you need 1 packet of marshmallows, 1 packet of spaghetti. The idea is to have 2 or more teams in competition to see who builds the highest tower using only the items provided. The towers must be safe - no points for them toppling over!!
It is fun but covers many competencies i.e. team work, communication, problem solving, leadership. It allows participants to use negotiating skills and improve their general communication...they also learn the benefit of planning.
As a twist I have swapped members between teams after 10-15 minutes. This can disrupt the teams but generally strengthens them.
The greater the numbers, the more spaghetti and marshmallows needed.
