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.
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.
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…
