Marshmallow Tower - A Challenging Party Game for Kids

Today party game is one that challenges the kids to thinking before they act and this game is geared for kids 8 and up. We recommend you have adult supervision for this party game.

This do it yourself party game involves two main items marshmallows and toothpicks (reason for adult supervision). How to play the Toothpick Marshmallow Tower Game

Each team or contestant is given the same number of marshmallows and toothpicks and they are given the challenge to build the highest tower in the allotted time frame.

While the premise is simple, the challenge can be interesting depending on whether you give them 1 minute to complete the tower or 5 minutes. Note: If you give then 5 minutes you'll want to give them a lot of marshmallows.

At the end of the game players stop building and their structure must stand on its own for at least a minute. Then the team with the tallest structure wins.
