Take your favorite game and make a GIANT version of it! Most people have seen giant chess, but you can do the same thing with all sorts of games. It is really fun!!!


Here are several possibilities that would not be too hard:

Giant Poker - Make the cards on big pieces of card stock and print out or paint the designs on.

Scrabble - Use wood or tiles and paint or decoupage each letter on. For the "board" you could do painting drop cloth (canvas) that you prime with a base coat and the paint with the Scrabble lines and symbols.

Mancala - You'd need large rocks or some other roundish objects like Nerf balls, plastic ornaments, etc. and either you could dig the giant mancala board (the game is often played in the dirt) or use big buckets or bowls.

Dominoes - Pieces of 1 inch lumber cut into lengths and all square edges sanded down to make them smooth.

Dice - Make jumbo dice out of squares of foam for playing Yahtzee or any other game that needs dice.
