Get-To-Know-You Jenga Game

Get-To-Know-You Jenga Game

As a fun ice breaker, I made this D.I.Y. "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!

How to Make Your Get-to-Know-You Jenga Game:

You'll need the following:

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.

Jenga Question Game

It added some extra excitement to do the regular old Jenga game with questions- it just spiced it up enough to have the girls more excited, AND gave them the opportunity to learn about each other in a fun way.

Here's a list of the get-to-know-you game questions and prompts I used for our Jenga question game:

  1. Fun!! I love it when you "go beyond" the intended game and make it more of a game to have conversations! :D That way it is so much better to get to know people!!


  2. What a great idea, kids will enjoy playing this game for sure :-)

  3. This is such a great idea! Great way to open up and get to know people :) Thank you :):):)

  4. Oh wow this is awesome, love this idea and there is so much more you could do with this as well!!

  5. What a brilliant but easy idea, I might use this with Girl Guides, thanks.

  6. I love it! It gets pretty loud just with the game, I can only imagine how crazy with the added element.

  7. what a fabulous idea!! oh my gosh. this makes it so much more fun and it helps you to get to know others better. love it

  8. This is a good idea. I love conversational games.

  9. What a great idea, I will have to use this one.

  10. 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!

  11. 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.

  12. This is so fun! I am thinking about using this in my classroom, but with like, math questions or something :p

  13. This is such a great idea! I love jenga, but this is even better!

  14. Oh my goodness.. I love this idea. I am a life coach and do group classes. I am going to do something like for my class. LOVE, LOVE this..

  15. This would be a great one for youth group or for Sunday school! I think I'll save this for the start of the new year!

  16. 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").

  17. 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!

  18. Wow,this game would not only be fun it would be a conversation this!

  19. We love it! Such an amazing and fun idea for a little bonding time with friends and family. So cool!
