About: Crafts, Toys, and Games out of Popsicle Sticks, Cardboard, Paper, etc.

Hi everyone!

In the previous project, I showed you how to make a KATAMINO POCKET Board Game.

Today, I’m gonna show you how to turn KATAMINO POCKET into KATAMINO FAMILY 2 Players, an interesting Family Game to have fun together.

The template can be found at the end of this Instructable.


• 4 Popsicle sticks: size 6" length

• Ruler with centimeters

• Ballpoint pen or pencil

• Wood glue

• Utility knife

• Abrasive sandpaper (approximately 180 grit)

• Coping saw

• Paint brush and assorted colors

• Binder clips

Step 1: Marking and Cutting

Take 4 Popsicle sticks and mark out the center line then cut in half lengthwise with a utility knife, we’ve got a total of 8 slats.

CAUTION! Be careful when handling sharp objects like scissors or knives.

Step 2: Gluing

Glue 4 slats together, carefully glue each slat one at a time (4 layer sticks with an 8.5mm overall thickness).

I clamped them with binder clips.

Allow a few hours for the sticks to dry completely before going to the next step.

Step 3: Cut Out the Pieces

Mark 15 sections as shown then cut out the pieces with a coping saw. Sand all pieces with sandpaper until everything is smooth and perfect.

Step 4: Building the Playing Pieces

Carefully glue each piece one at a time as shown.

Allow to dry before proceeding to the next step.

Step 5: Paint the Playing Pieces

Paint the pieces in different colors. Let it dry thoroughly and you’ve got a total of 10 playing pieces.

Step 6: All Done!

Your DIY KATAMINO FAMILY is now completed!

It’s the time to host an entertaining game night for the family because games are a fun way to bring everybody together.
