Jenga is a fun game for both adults and kids. Imagine how much fun a giant sized game would be!

Well you can make your own giant sized outdoor Jenga game to add fun to your backyard! Here is how to do it:

DIY Jenga

What you’ll need:

  • wood
  • saw
  • sandpaper
  • stain or dye (optional)


  1. Cut 54 x 10.5″ pieces cut from 2 x 4″ boards.
  2. Sand edges until they are smooth so they will slide easily and also not give splinters to the kids.
  3. Dye or stain the pieces if you wish and leave them to dry overnight.
  4. Stack up your pieces and get playing.

My kids love Jenga and they would love a big outdoor version, I think I will have to make one. This would make a great party game too.

  • Actually….if you live close to an area where new houses are being built and talk to some of the builders they might be happy for you to go through their bins and get the off cuts.


  • Check out your local hardware and price the timber first before telling the kids about this. Ive discovered its not as cheap as you might think.


  • I can see someone getting donged on the head with these, particularly if someone isn’t happy about losing


  • the colours would help make this fun. this is a great game


  • Oh this looks fun! I love the colours as well :)


  • I saw one of these on a TV Series earlier this week. Tghe ends had been lightly sanded and painted with a matt finish paint. Small pieces of timber are best from a playing point of view. Safer too.


  • This is a great project for my boys and little girl to do together. Cannot wait to show them. What a great way to have fun with kids. Love Jenga


  • i was going to make this for our garden party wedding. It is such a cute idea


  • My boy loves Jenga. This is a great and simple idea.


  • That looks really cool, thanks for sharing.


  • I don’t know the game Jenga ?


  • Terrific way to use up the left over wood from the renos.


  • I love this idea but what do other MOMS think – would the wooden blocks be heavy when they fall? We have small children and one accident prone child :)


  • Thanks for this wonderful and creative idea. Time to get the project hat on!


  • Not only will I really enjoy making these with the kids. I also get to enjoy playing the game with them. Brilliant, they look fab
