For this at-home challenge, I combined one of my first challenges (Lego Challenge–Prison Break) and one of my latest challenges (Lego Challenge–Minifig Adventure Photos.) In the Prison Break challenge, kids had to come up with a way, real or imaginary, to escape a large box. This has the same feel, but this kinda opens up the possibilities of what’s possible.
So all kids have to do is find a way for their Lego minifigs to reach up to something in their house. It can be a kitchen counter, a table, a couch, whatever. And it can be in any direction. So they can not only go up, but down and across.
So they can build things like stairs, elevators, slides, catapults, ziplines–anything they can build!! I like how this one builds on the Adventure Photos challenge we did a few weeks ago. It’s still about your toys exploring the real world, but now there’s an actual building component to it.
Just like for the “Minifig Adventure Photos,” I explained this new challenge in a quick video I posted on my library’s Facebook page, and showed them the examples I came up with. At the end, I asked my kiddos to take a photo of their piece, and attach it to the the “Comments” section of that video. Lots of fun!
Here’s a video of me explaining the challenge to my kiddos, if that helps:
