Mikado basteln Ikea hack

Make your own Mikado

A simple IKEA HACK for crafting with the ORDNING cutlery stand from IKEA.

IKEA ORDNING* is the IKEA accessory that all IKEA fans know by sight and the name actually says it all. The metal stand is usually used to hold cutlery, kitchen utensils and pens.

But there's another way: with straws, the cutlery stand* becomes a game of skill for the whole family. We show you how you can easily make a Mikado.

Making a Mikado with the cutlery stand

Straws fit perfectly into the holes! How to make a simple family game yourself - are you playing? If you enjoy playing simple games of skill such as Mikado, Jenga etc., this will definitely be something for you. Even small children can join in and try everything out.

What you need to make it:

In addition to the IKEA cutlery stand*, all you need is a pack of narrow straws and a ball made of wood or, even better, polystyrene. A mini woollen pompom is also a great idea.

And this is how it works:

Put as many straws as possible in a criss-cross pattern through the holes in the basket to create a real "net" of straws.

One player places the ball on top of the straws with a steady hand. Now you are ready for the first round of your new game!

The first player selects a straw and carefully pulls it out. The aim is not to change the position of the ball. If it moves, it's the next player's turn. If it doesn't move, another straw can be pulled out.

The winner is the player who collects the most straws before the ball lands on the ground.

Why not give it a try! After all, it's much nicer to play together on the terrace or balcony in the evening than sitting in front of the TV, especially in summer. Why don't you tell us who's on the winner's podium: is it the parents or the children? We're betting on the kids' finesse :-)

How about an XXL social game? The highlight of the next garden party! We'd love you to share the IKEA hack!
