Tallest Tower

Contributed by: Luke Shaw, Diocese of Nelson

tallesttowerSplit youth into teams and give them the same pre-prepared bundle of objects – such as newspapers, paper cups, toothpicks, straws, tape (choose some random and funny objects too).  Their aim is to build the tallest ‘tower’ in a set time limit with whatever objects you have given them. Make sure each team has the exact same amount of stuff to build with and remember that their towers have to remain standing freely after time in order to count for the win.
