Upcycled Jenga Blocks - Marbleized and Colorful!

This is a fun little way to upcycle an old jenga block game or add some colors and fun marble patterns to building blocks. Plus, a great activity to do with kids!

Last October I attempted my first time marbleizing with rocks and scrap wood and pumpkins too of course. It was a one of those afternoon experiment with my boys that led to one thing after another. After we did the rocks, scrap wood and pumpkins, my boys were begging to marbleize something else.

One day they were playing with their jenga blocks (not the game, but building things - isn't that how you play jenga?) and we had this fun idea of marbleizing some of them. Some of them happen to be a non-generic set from target so they were our testing victim.

And boy, were they excited! We got all my colors out and even mixed a couple of the colors. Gold or silver mixed with any of the colors was beautiful and each design was unique. The best part was that the boys (3 and 5 at the time) were able to do most of them by themselves.

And as you can see below, they are still perfect for building with and of course, playing Jenga as well :).
