Supplement classic yard games like cornhole and croquet with a larger-than-life version of dominoes! These colorful blocks are sure to bring out nostalgia and fun for young and old alike. We used dot stickers to mark out the numbers and sealed each domino to make them outdoor-friendly.

What You Need

  • Two 84-inch 2x4 wood pieces, cut into 6-inch blocks
  • Wood stain
  • Spar urethane
  • Paper towels
  • Paintbrush
  • Sanding block
  • Dot stickers

Step 1: Cut and Sand Wood Pieces

Cut two 84-inch 2x4 wood pieces into 6-inch blocks. You should have 28 blocks--the number of dominoes in a standard set. Sand the ends of each block to remove sharp edges.

Step 2: Stain Wood

Stain wood blocks, making sure your work area is well-ventilated. Allow to dry. Remove any excess stain with a paper towel. Repeat for each side of the blocks.

Step 3: Apply Dots and Seal

Apply colorful dot label stickers to indicate the numbers on each domino. (You can find them at office supply stores.) Seal with spar urethane to protect stain and keep stickers from coming off. Let dry for at least 24 hours before using.
