The young people are challenged to build a free-standing paper tower and post a photo of them with it.

Type: Online ChallengeRunning Time: n/a
Sections: Cubs, Scouts, ExplorersDigital platforms: Closed Social Media Group/Website


Challenge the young people to make a free-standing tower, using only paper and sticky tape.

Get them to post a picture of their tower, with them standing along side it, to your social media channel(s).

Tips and gotchas:

We ran this as a competition but had several Scouts submitting pictures of them standing by their towers then claiming to be over 6’8″! Get parents to measure the height of the towers. 🙂
