Kids Activity - 7 Non-traditional Jenga Block Games

We have a set of Jenga blocks at home. We like to play them so much.

Besides playing them in the traditional way, my son and I brainstormed some other ways to play with them.

We had much fun with these games. Share them with you here!


1. Build the tallest 'building'

With no limit on number of blocks to be used, try to build the tall 'building'. Who can build the tallest one will be the winner.


2. Build the strongest 'building'

With limited number of blocks, try to build the strongest 'building'. How to judge which one is the strongest? We used the remote control car to help us. Your opponent uses the car to crash the 'building'. The building that can tolerate greatest number of crashes before falling down can be won.

Rainbow Popsicle Sticks Pen-holder

I bought a pack of colorful popsicle sticks for my son long time ago.

These sticks are special as they have 'teeth' for building up easily.

I planned to build a small house with my son. But my son did not want that and the pack of sticks was put idle for a long time.

Recently, my son saw the pack again and told me he wanted to make a pen-holder with them.

Oh! What a good idea!

We decided to make a rainbow color pen-holder.

But after finishing it, we discovered that it was too big. Some shorter pencil and pen would lie horizontally under the pen-holder.

Also, we found that it was quite difficult to stick the bottom with a cardboard.

We had to think some way to make some vertical layers and to stick the bottom cardboard tightly.

Finally, we used a few colorful strings to solve the above problems. With strings, vertical layers can be made and they prevent the bottom from falling off.

Also, coloring strings are pretty and creative! We love it so much. How do you think?
