Skittles and Marshmallows

18 08 2014

No it wasn’t snack time, it was team building time for each of the 5 groups.  If there is a better way to conduct a team-building session then I haven’t learned about it yet!

The skittles game allowed the individuals to share various bits of information about  themselves in a fun and ultimately delicious way.  Then came the competitive part!, each group were given materials to build a spaghetti tower to support their marshmallow.  An extra large countdown clock pressurised the group to be very aware of their time management with planning, building and taping getting more frantic as the clock ticked down.

I think everyone picked up a lesson or two from the activity, even if one of those lessons was self control and NOT to eat the materials!!! No marshmallows were harmed during this activity, although they did seem to vanish afterwards…
