Minute To Win It "Rapid Fire" Challenge

The fourth challenge was called "Rapid Fire".  Players must shoot rubber bands to knock a triangle stack of 6 cans down.

Rapid Fire Challenge

The reason I love this party theme so much is because it's affordable. All party supplies could potentially be found around the home.  Rubber bands were borrowed from Bolling Steel Company and the cans were empty from Bolling consumption.
The boys' "stance" sends a false impression that they knew how to shoot a rubber band, but they really were clueless and were struggling, which led to a little bit of frustration, but they came up with clever ways to get that rubber band across the room, which created LAUGHTER.  See Gabe's face.
This challenge was by far one of the harder challenges for this age group because they didn't have the dexterity or developmental "know how" to shoot a rubber band. Darren and I competed against each other, in this challenge, and I won!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It was a blast to hear the boys begin cheering for Darren (since he's a male and they assumed he'd win), but then once I was closer to winning, they began cheering for ME!!!!
