Today we're kicking off Summer Fun Fridays!
So glad it is summer!
I've been wanting to make a large sized Jenga game.
There are those cool giant sets out there made out of 2x4s.
I wanted a larger set, but for it to still be easily portable.
I came up with Super Sized Jenga--
a step larger than the original.
You'll need 4 pieces of 1"x 2"x 8's.
The great guys at Lowes cut them into 6" pieces for me.
This saved me so much time!
You'll end up with about 60 six inch pieces.
Next you sand.
Use an electric hand or belt sander
and get those pieces smooth!
I thought it would be fun to stain my pieces different colors.
Had the kids help stain.
I'm using Minwax wood stain in the 4 colors I had sitting in my garage.
Here is our stain guide:
The original Jenga has 54 pieces and stacks them in 3s.
My Super Size Jenga will stack in 4s and you can use all 60 pieces.
Doesn't it look great with the different wood colors?!
This game is fun for the kids and the whole fam.
Play it outdoors or in.
The size is perfect to tote along with us on vacations to the lake this summer.
I might bring it up to girls camp too.
Have a fun Friday.
Make it a game day!
