I love Jenga... it's a game and a toy (they make great building blocks or dominoes too). When I was doing my internship and working with middle schoolers, we had an interactive Jenga game that I've written about in the past. I made my own version of the game and used it for years before finally retiring my set to our family game closet when I decided to stay home with my kids. My kids LOVE playing it with me now though so I tailored it to be questions more appropriate for a family jenga game. It's got lots of questions that are great to talk about with your children. This is geared towards younger children (4-10 years old), but I would adjust some of the questions and add some new ones for older children.

Tutorial for How to Make a Family Jenga Game

First, you'll need to purchase or make a Jenga set. I scrapped our old set and got a new set for the kids for Christmas... I'm going to upcycle it so keep an eye out for that project!

Originally, I just hand wrote numbers on my blocks, but this time I wanted to use my Cricut Air 2 to put the numbers on the blocks so it looked nicer. You could easily get number stickers at the store, but I used outdoor (permanent) vinyl for this. For numbers 1-10, I used the actual words for the numbers because I want to work with my sons on reading the words for these numbers. Once I hit ten though, I switched to the numbers though because some of the words were too long for the blocks (without decreasing font size). 

I'll save you a couple of minutes if you want and you can print off my Numbers for the Jenga Blocks with your Cricut machine. 

You'll print the file on permanent vinyl. Weed it. 

Cut the permanent vinyl for your Jenga blocks.

Use transfer paper to place the numbers on each block. Make sure you don't accidentally put two numbers on one block. I did this then struggled to find the missing number.

Apply the vinyl to your Jenga blocks using transfer paper.There's all of your numbers. If you're having trouble with the vinyl sticking to the wood, you can apply a layer of mod podge to seal it. I didn't do this as they seemed like they were on there pretty good, but I may go back and fix them if I start to see peeling. I feel like I have mixed results with vinyl peeling off wood.

But that's not all- make sure to print off my Family Jenga Questions Printable that's available to subscribers. You can certainly make up your own questions too. I ended up laminating the papers because my last papers ended up getting folded up a million times, one piece got lost, they were ripped, etc. And that was before they even got home to my kids! LOL!

Now you can set it up to play.

Can you pin this?
