Quick time filler game requiring the kids to make the longest strip of paper possible


Scrap paper, all of the same size.


Each child is given a piece of paper of equal size. They can tear it gently in any way they want to make the longest strip of paper possible. The child that makes the longest strip possible wins. They can repeat it as many times as they like, or as you have paper!

This is good as a time filler between other activities, or when you want the kids to sit quietly for a bit.

Don't for get to recycle the paper :o)
