DIY Get-To-Know-You Jenga Game

Another fun ice breaker, I made this "Get-To-Know-You" Jenga game for our first activity with the girls (ages 8-11) at church! I've included the list of prompts or questions that I used, to help you get started if you'd like to make your own- it makes a great party game!


To make this game, here's what you'll need:



A Jenga game (I found a smaller, $3 version at a dollar store)
A marker
A list of get-to-know-you questions or prompts (see below)

...and that's it!

Just write the prompts on the wood pieces and have the players answer the question on the piece they remove on their turn.


Here's a list of the prompts I used for our game:

  11. Oh my what a absolutely great idea! My now son in law made 2X4 jenga pieces for their outdoor engagement party. On the pieces he put trivia about himself & our daughter. It was a big hit at the BBQ.

    1. That's awesome! I had a "cousin-in-law" who had a giant Jenga game at his reception! :) I don't think it involved trivia though- that's a good idea!

  12. Especially for tween girls who may not want to tell much about themselves, this is a great way for them to share about who they are with others.

    I can't believe you found this game at the dollar store because I just bought it from Amazon and thought I got a deal paying 9.60 + tx. Now I feel like I lost my bargain but I'll know for the future because I bought it and many other toys for a Christmas charity that I donate to every year. Live and learn !

    1. Debbie, you probably got the regular version of Jenga. The one I bought at the dollar store is a mini version (it works fine, but it's not the "real thing").

  18. This is such a fun idea! My mother in law was just talking about wanting to do a game like this for Christmas. I will share with her!
