How to Use straws to make buildings/bridges at a kid's party
Hello, my name is Nicole Valentine and on behalf of Expert Village, I'm here to talk to you about how to coordinate birthday games for a birthday party. Now we're going to talk about group competition games. These make the party worth while. For example; if you have let's say about 14 party guest, you can divide them up into groups of 2, put 7 in one group and 7 in the other and have a different activity for each group competition. Let me show you an example. I purchased this bag of straws, Mona's Drinking Straws, but these aren't going to be used for drinking. These are an activity. These straws can be used to challenge the kids to create a bridge or another structure that you would like to come up with. Let me show you an example. Here's an example, the group of 7 students got together to build a bridge and you may even want to add a time limit. Let's say 10 minutes. This game encourages teamwork, creativity, and higher level thinking. But most importantly it adds fun.
