Time: approx. 5 min.
Recommended age: from 8
Size of group: it doesn't matter
Time for preparation: low
Material: String or rope, paper snakes (from newspaper or party cans) a stick with a hook as a rod and a measuring tape.

Game description

Paper snakes are hanging on a string and are angled with a stick and then knotted together in a long paper snake. After a certain amount of time (2-3 minutes) the paper snakes are measured.


An additional variation might be that the half of a team makes a long paper snake from a newspaper which is hung from a string, another team member fishes it down and another knots it together. All group members are involved in this version.


The team with the longest paper snake knotted together wins.
