FAMILY FUN FRIDAY-Spaghetti and Gummy Bears

Round up the family, it is time to play with your food.

For this game/activity, you will need

 Spaghetti Noodles (Uncooked)

Gummy Bears

Objective: To construct a tower made of spaghetti noodles and gummy bears. The tallest tower wins and must stay standing for three minutes. 

Rules: You can play as individuals or in groups. If you have a lot of people, groups of 4 work really well. More than 4 will work, but it is hard for everyone to be involved. Towers must be built of only spaghetti noodles and gummi bears. Nothing else.  If your tower falls, before the 3 minutes is over, it doesn't count. Tallest tower wins. 

From experience, I have found that each person, or group, will need about 75 gummi bears. You will want the gummi bears to be fresh. Stale gummies will not be any fun. You will want a good handful of noodles for each person or group also. When the game is over, you have a built in treat. :)

TIP: Do you have very small children? You and hubby build the towers and have the children be in charge of warming up the gummy bears. 

Have a Great Weekend!

  1. I have seen a kindergarten class come up with an amazing structure using spaghetti and marshmallows. Fun idea, Heather!

    1. This is a fun rendition on the marshmallows. It's a really good game for kids. They are creative and patient!

  2. How fun! I like it because it is constructive and imaginative, kind of the opposite of those games where you try to remove parts of the structure without making it fall.

  3. That looks like great fun! I've heard of toothpicks and marshmallows before, but spaghetti would work even better!
