Nanny Anita’s LEGO Challenge

I love LEGO! I mean, who doesn’t? Except of course if you step on it, then it becomes the devil’s toy. My charges asked to get the LEGO out during one of our nice quiet mornings together so I obligingly pulled it all out and thought of this wonderful challenge that I had seen: The LEGO Challenge! I told my charges about it and at first YC was the only one interested, EC wanted to do his own thing. He of course changed his mind when he saw what we were up to.

Make sure that you follow my stem board on Pinterest for more ideas, and don’t forget to save the pin for later.

You will need:

  • Lego
  • An imagination

The LEGO challenge is very simple. Each person takes it in turn to name something like an object, animal, plant etc. Then everyone builds it.  At the end everyone can explain their design.

If you wanted to turn it into a competition one person who could judge it and award points. That is obviously optional, my lot were just happy to build the stuff. We had a fish, guitar, friendship bracelet and car, amongst other things.

I found that this was a great way to get YC engaged in thinking for herself and out of the box. She often likes to copy other people’s idea (which is no bad thing), but this made her think and come up with solutions for construction problems.

This is something that you could also take with you to use while waiting around. Just fill a small Tupperware box with some bricks and of you go.

For more LEGO ideas check out my LEGO Ker-plunk game and LEGO marble maze.
