Set up teams of 3-5 players per team at a starting line.
Give each team two half-length pool noodles.
Place 50 foam pieces 10-20 paces away from the start line.
At the signal to begin pairs of players run to the pile of foam pieces and pick up, between two pool noodles, one foam piece and return it to their team.
When the foam piece is returned, the pool noodles are given two new players to pick up another foam piece.
Teams can begin to pile their foam pieces so that they can build the highest tower with the foam pieces.
