Here's a challenge that requires fast communication and superior teamwork.
Gather the materials from the list below and place them on a table. Read the materials list and team instructions out loud to the team.
2 pieces of paper
1 pair of lace up shoes (untied)
A container filled with 25 toothpicks
A sandwich sized zip top bag
*may not be altered
You have two minutes to complete the following tasks: Cut one piece of paper into four pieces and one piece of paper into six pieces; tie the shoelaces on both shoes into bows and put the toothpicks into the zip top bag and seal it, without directly touching any of the toothpicks. But here's the catch: each team member can only use one hand in completing this task. You must each place one hand behind your back. You will be notified when you have only one minute remaining. You will receive up to ten points each for creativity, communication and cooperation. You will also receive five bonus points for each successfully completed task.
