My daughter loves alphabet games, so I decided to repurpose some old Jenga blocks to make her a new game.
Scrapbook paper or designs printed on paper (see dryicons.com or allvectors.com for free designs.)
Wooden pieces of idential size
Scissors or cutting board
Small foam brush
Mod Podge glue -- matte or glossy
Mod Podge sealent -- matte or glossy
Cut paper design to fit block size (Jenga blocks are 7.5 cm x 2.5 cm). Use a foam brush to apply a thin layer of Modge Podge glue to the block and adhere the paper. Let dry for several hours. Sand the edges of the blocks -- this will make them softer, will remove any excess paper, and give them a more homemade look. Lightly spray each block with Mod Podge sealent. Let dry for several hours.
