Lego Challenge–Building Vertically

Another day, another Lego challenge!  This one is obviously a good one to do at home, but I can see this one definitely working for a traditional library Lego Club.  The only thing special you need is a big Lego baseplate.  The bigger, the better–if you don’t have one, you can do your best to try and combine some small Lego plates together.  All you have to do is build a wall about 3 or 4 blocks high along one side of your plate.  Then stand it up along it’s edge.  Because today we’re building vertically!!

This is a bit like the Lego Challenge–Upside Down Legos! we did a while back, where we taped plates to the bottom of a table and built upside down!  This is obviously a lot easier.  So you can build rock climbing walls, stairs, Plinko boards, weird “Matrix” style sideways battles, or do some Lego art!

Here’s the video I posted on my library’s Facebook page, explaining the challenge:
