What you need: You need an outdoor area, cooked spaghetti, and containers.

How to play: Establish a starting line and a finish line in a large outdoor area. Divide the children into equally numbered teams. Each team gets a container of cooked spaghetti. Line teams up at the starting line.

The rules: At the starting signal, the first players on each team will take three pieces of spaghetti and lay them down, one piece at a time beginning at the starting line. Where the first piece ends, the next piece will start. Then the next players will do the same thing. Play continues until the pasta trail reaches the finish line.

How to win: The first team to get the pasta trail all the way to the finish line is the winning team.

What else you need to know: You can play this game indoors if you have a tarp or something to lay down to cover the floor.
