Marshmallow Tower

Are you ready to challenge your family and friends and put your building skills to the test? Use everyday items to build the tallest standing tower!

What you’ll need:

  • 20 sticks of spaghetti
  • 1 yard of tape
  • 1 yard of string
  • 1 marshmallow
  • Timer/clock


  1. Gather all of your materials on a flat sturdy surface
  2. Watch the clock or set your timer for 18 minutes
  3. Start putting together your materials into a tower (you have to use everything before the time is up)
  4. Build the highest and sturdiest tower that you can before time runs out!


Questions for you:

How tall was your tower?

Was it more difficult than you thought?

How would you build it differently next time?
