Game #57: "The Spaghetti Beauty Salon"

Crazy & Funny Guy-Girl Upfront Challenge.  Great for a youth group night, retreat, or camp setting.  Also works great as a tie-in to a lesson on the relationships with the opposite sex, beauty, or appearances...

-A Good Amount of Pre-Cooked Angel Hair Pasta or Spaghetti
-Packages of hair accessories (ribbons, bows, rubber bands, clips, pins, flowers....)
- 2 Bowls

Set Up:
Split up your pasta in 2 even amounts into 2 bowls.  Open up your hair accessories and split those up evenly as well into 2 piles by 2 chairs you have set up, up front or on your stage.

Game Play/Rules:
Call up 2 guys and 2 girls, pair them into 2 teams 1 boy, 1 girl.  Have the boy sit down in the chair and the girl remain standing.  Explain the rules and give each team a set amount of time to create their "hairstyles".

Basic rules and explaination:  Using the pasta the girl will have to place the pasta all over the boys head creating a "wig" of "hair" and then using the provide hair accessories create the best "hairstyle".

The winner will be judge by a panel of "experts" (adult leaders) or by audience cheer level or however you choose.

- For slightly less messy version consider using refriderated pre-cooked pasta similar to "Buitoni"?
