DIY_JumboJengaOne of my favorite things about summer is taking the party outside with family and friends. There is nothing better than grilling out and playing yard games. There are many great lawn games that are staples for a summer barbeque but jumbo Jenga is a fun way to get everyone involved. It is quick and easy to make and only costs you about $30, providing hours of entertainment with family and friends!

My hubby and I made one for our wedding and it was used as a guest book. They wrote their names and fun messages that we enjoy reading every time we play! We can take it outdoors to play during the warm months and clear a spot on the floor as the cooler months take over. You can use the same idea and have your guests sign the blocks when they come to your house to play!

Wood (4- 2x4x16)
A hardware assistant, hand saw or circular saw

Step 1 Purchase the wood. Lowes or Home Depot should have what you’re looking for.
Step 2 Have a hardware assistant cut the wood to size for you. If you want to do it yourself, you’ll need 4 pieces, each at 2x4x16. In total, you’ll need 74 pieces. Each piece will need to be cut to 10.5”.
Step 3 Use the sandpaper to round the edges a little to prevent slivers.
Step 4 Grab some friends, it’s time to play!
