Stacking Tower Game Prep:
- Color or paint the showing short edges in 3 colors.
- Create your song list and fill in your songs on the printable strips or write them right onto the stacking tower blocks. You’ll want to pick 16 songs or repeat 8 songs twice or repeat 4 songs 4 times each.
- Cut out the printable strips below or simply write on the block pieces themselves. Attach with mod podge or clear tape.
- As an alternative, you can keep them simply colored and then draw from a bowl matched to the colors.
How to Play:
Randomize all of the tower pieces. Then stack them in rows of 3 alternating directions. Play a traditional game of Jenga and draw 1, 2, or 3 pieces to determine what to sing next.
- 1 piece = Have a volunteer pick randomly from all the pieces available. Switch songs if a new song or repeat the same song and add the way to sing or manipulative.
- 2 pieces = Pick one blue piece (song title) and then one either yellow or green piece. Sing the song with the method picked.
- 3 pieces = Pull one Stacking Tower piece from all 3 colors. Sing the song picked and let the volunteer choose the way to sing or the manipulative to use from the two choices – or use both at the same time! You may get some wacky and fun combinations like drawing the song while doing the robot! The kids will love the whacky and crazy combinations.
Stacking Tower Piece Guide:
- Blue: Song Title
- Yellow: Ways to Sing
- Green: Manipulative
- Build the tower by throwing the colored pieces in 3 different small bins. Build up the tower, then knock it over at the end!
- Head over to our 110 Different Ways to Sing post and write out a different way to sing on each of the tower blocks. Repeat singing just one song for review and pick a way to sing from each game piece drawn.
- See our Pin the Primary Song post to instead review up to 48 different Primary songs for a fun end of the year or intro review.
