Innovating with Jenga!




 I bought the game of Jenga a couple of years back before realizing that it's rather too much for a 4 or 5 year old. Ever since then, the kids have found out innovative ways of using the blocks from playing Dominoes with them to building up different structures. This one was the "highest" ever one and therefore the look of achievement on D's face :).



After a while of trying the high structures, S moved to making a train which was also pretty great!

  2. The train is pretty cool. I would have never thought of making one..trust a kid to come up with that. Yup jenga's never been a hit with my kids as well...maybe I shd take it out again.

    1. Uma, these are wooden blocks called Jenga - they are not supposed to be building blocks, the concept of the game is a bit different, check it out online. In my home, they are building blocks most of the time unless hubby tries to coax D into playing the actual game ;).
