I purchased a gold mine of crafting inspiration last week when I found a mixed bag of Jenga blocks at my local thrift store for $1.25. There’s something about repurposing those blocks that has become addictive.  Today I’ll show you an easy kids’ craft making your own diy dominoes that would also make a great teacher gift.DIY Dominoes - Organized 31

 My crafting buddy, J., and I got together for a session of crafting and chatting (or was it chatting and crafting?).  After we made a recycled back to school craft with the blocks, I wanted to paint more.  J. came up with the idea that the blocks would make perfect dominoes.  The great thing about painting the Jenga blocks as dominoes is that now you have 2 games in one.DIY Dominoes - Organized 31

We painted one side of the blocks with black craft paint.DIY Dominoes - Organized 31

After the paint dried (about 20 minutes), we used a paint pin to make the face of the dominoes.DIY Dominoes - Organized 31
