If they say "We're bored"...

get out some toothpicks and marshmallows!

I got this idea years ago when we did this game as a team building exercise in a class.

We were timed and told to take dry spaghetti noodles and marshmallows and see who could build the tallest structure. Fun!

I've revised it a little since then. We use toothpicks instead. It's a great activity to do when your kids have company. I don't time them because that would end the fun to soon.

It's quiet fun!!! -They sit, chat, create and munch! : )

(a big plus for moms!)

It's always so much fun to see what they can make.

So, keep some toothpicks and marshmallows on hand.
