The Lego Master Builder Challenge

Finding new and fun things to do with my kids, without spending a bunch of money, has become a hobby of mine. We have too many toys as it is, yet I hear “I’m bored” all too often. We have Mountains of Lego, so I knew I could come up with a fun Lego activity… so the Lego Master Builder Challenge was born.  

Here is a fun Lego Activity that uses your kids memory and imagination. Get them up and moving for this Lego Master Builder Challenge.
 

What you will need for your Master Builder Lego Activity…

  • Lego. You will need 2 of every Lego if doing for one child, 3 of each for 2 children…etc.  This can be time consuming at first. Make the kids help!
  • Something to hold the Lego.  I use an egg carton (I use egg cartons for everything!!)
  • That’s it!  Ok a little imagination doesn’t hurt.

Now build something. Anything. Use one of each piece.

Now put your completed Creation into one room of the house.

Have your child sit in another with his pieces.

Let them know they can go and look at your Creation.

Give them hints to look at a few pieces at a time and pay attention to details…
 When they have a few pieces memorized, have them return to their Lego.
Let them know to replicate your Creation.
Once they get a few pieces built they can return to your Creation for another look.

They can go back and forth as many times as needed.

Pick it up, look at colors, count blocks, etc…Here is a fun Lego Activity that uses your kids memory and imagination. Get them up and moving for this Lego Master Builder Challenge.

Continue this process until they think they have a perfect match.

A few helpful hints…
 
Start them off with a simple build.  Based on how much time it takes them, you can gauge the next challenge.  My first challenge caused major melt downs…
 
Also make them far enough apart they have to get up and move a bit.  It makes it take longer!!
Bonus for us!!

Have Fun with your Master Builder Lego Activity!!

 
P.S. Did you know the plural for Lego is still Lego???  Like fish or Deer! Just a quick fact for ya…

My little guy is still using Lego Duplos and he loves them! They are much easier to mange than regular legos!

We have all 3 sizes in our house! They are so great for so many activities... We use them to practice counting, colors, sorting... You name it!

I didn't know that fact about Lego, but when I got to the second "Lego" in this post, I figured it wasn't a typo and that you knew something I didn't. Thanks for the tip! This activity looks like so much fun! I bet my oldest would really like it!

I want to say it is in one of the extras from the Lego movie or something... I made sure to google it too just to make sure I wasn't making it up in my head :)
