Standing Pool Noodle (game)

Materials: Pool Noodles

Instructions: Players start by each holding a pool noodle standing upright. Once the leader calls go, players move clockwise to the next noodle and try to keep it standing, and then to the next noodle after that. Players do this for as many rounds as possible. After so many successful rounds the pool noodles are placed at a greater distance from one another, making it more challenging each time.
