Backyard Jenga DIY

Thursday, May 28, 2015

There's this great little brewery downtown that Mr. and I have grown to love.  They don't serve food. There aren't any TV screens.  Instead people talk and play games.  Cue the Cheers theme song.  Food trucks like Urban Street Grill and Bandito Burrito make weekly appearances.  Anyway, the other night we noticed people playing Jenga outside on the patio.  Not the kind you play on a table, but rather large Jenga played on the ground.

I immediately began google searching "big jenga" and quickly found options from Amazon & Etsy. They weren't cheap either.  We both thought it looked easy enough to make.  So we did.

We have had the best time with family and friends playing this game!  Even grandparents like it! This is a game for kids of all ages!  And believe me, nothing makes me happier than hearing the laughter of our sons and their friends in our backyard long after I've tucked myself in at night.

To make your very own backyard Jenga you will need:

Hand or circular saw
4 - 2" x 4" x 16' boards --->  (this makes 72 pieces which makes it more fun!)
Cut all boards into 10 1/2" pieces.
Sand to smooth out the splinters.  I used a palm sander.

You can find Jenga rules here.  Let me know if you try it.  Have fun!
