Game description

Every participant gets one A4 paper sheet and one toothpick. If desired, kids can team up in groups of 2 each. In this case, one kid drops the paper, while the other one tries to pick it up again using only the toothpick.


Players must pick up the sheet of A4 paper with the toothpick as often as possible.


Whoever picks up the paper first wins. Or How many holes can you make in the sheet of paper, let’s say in one minute.
