Team building games Icebreaker games Small group games

How To Play Straws and Rubberbands

1) Each person gets a straw
2) The straw must be held using their mouth
3) They have to pass the rubberband around using the straw.
4) If the rubberband DROPS, the straw has to be CUT

1) Hands not allowed to hold the straws or rubberband!
2) Pass the rubberband before the time limit (time limit example: 10 seconds)
3) The band must not fall. If it does. the person's straw has to be cut. (cut around 1cm everytime the band drops.)
The last person with the longest straw wins.

It is a very good game only thing is that the name of the games should be written as Pass The Rubber band

May i know what are the objective of straw and rubber band game?

We have a group of around 40 kids. Is this played with one rubberband? I think many kids would quickly figure out to avoid it and they would never get their straw cut. So just stand around without another objective. Am I missing something?

So I like this game it sounds fun BUT it sounds more like a game to be played by teenagers at a slumber party or drink night unfortunately I feel like playing this game at work could cause HR to become involved or upset parents for a youth group only because the shorter the straw the closer your lips become to one another’s not trying to sound rediculous but unfortunately this is the type of world we’re living in where everything gets turned into something it’s not
