Go Big or Go Home: Giant Games for Library Programs

Big board games are nothing new for library programs, many of us have played RoseMary’s Live Clue or seen Abby’s CandyLand.  I’ve been collecting some other ideas and I hope they inspire you like they inspire me!

There are a ton of tutorials for giant Jenga on the web. This one seems pretty easy to follow.


If you have someone with real DIY skills they can make you a giant Kerplunk game with directions from This Old House.

You could easily make your own sticks for a game of Giant Pick-Up Sticks

This youth ministry blog has a rather ambitious but amazing life-size Hungry Hungry Hungry Hippos game. This might work for large systems that will get multiple uses out of the equipment.



How about life-size Pac Man. Even better as part of an 80’s party!
