Large Jenga

Posted: August 28, 2017 in Uncategorized

A few years ago, my wife had me make a Jenga game for VBS. It was super simple. I just bought 2X4’s from the local hardware store, cut them to length (using my miter saw), and sanded the edges smooth (using my sanding jig)..


Here’s a pic of when I was making it…


We had used it a couple of times and it worked well…   But for this VBS, we wanted something a little different. The idea was to divide the blocks into sets of 4. Paint each block a different color. When a kid was playing the game, they had to spin the wheel (see instructions here),. Whatever color the wheel landed on, that’s the color of the block the had to remove from the Jenga. This just gave it an extra challenge.

Here’s a couple of pics after I had painted the Jenga pieces.  I only have pics of the first two colors.


Let me know what you think.
