Homemade wooden Angry Birds game

Recently Sunnyboy saw an Angry Birds 'Knock On Wood Game' commercial on TV and designed his own version. He dictated instructions for me to write so we could make it.

Angry Birds Game
Make round wooden Angry Birds, Pigs and King Pig.
Make a castle but not put nails in it.
Make a little hide-out but not put nails in it.
Make precious eggs.

We had three wooden balls and used marker pens to draw an Angry Bird, King Pig and another pig to be the guard.

We used the wooden pieces from an old Jenga set and each time Sunnyboy plays the game he creates different castles, forts and hide-outs for the pigs.

For the precious eggs we used marbles.

To play the game Sunnyboy rolls the Angry Bird down the sloping paving slabs outside our back door to knock over the castle and rescue the precious eggs. He took this photograph to show the view as the Angry Bird rolls towards the castle.

  7. That is fantastic! What a genius idea!

  8. Great idea! What sized wooden balls did you use? I can't tell from the pics and I didn't see the wooden balls next to marbles to try and guess. I think my kids would love this. My parents have scraps of wood and we own marbles:)
