Marshmallow Drop Chapter Activity

We saw a hilarious video from Gridley FFA where several of their finest chapter members played Mallow drop. Two students sit on the floor, leaned back, with noses pointed to the ceiling, and an ice cream cone in their mouth. Their partner standing on a table nearby has to drop as many mini marshmallows as possible in their cone for 1 one minute. Sounds simple I know, but the best part is the thrower is blindfolded. So the receiver can't talk with a cone in their mouth and the thrower can't see a thing. Hopefully your chapter has some great sports who can really have fun with this activity.
