Coming up with Lego challenges that we can do at home has been a little tricky, but this one worked out pretty good!!  For this challenge, I had my kiddos build TWO different creations. For the first part, they could build whatever they wanted.  A house, a boat, a car, a houseboat, a carhouse, whatever! ... Continue Reading →

The current outbreak has obviously made it impossible to meet up for a Lego Club.  But there's still many ways to engage with your kids and inspire creativity.  So for my first virtual Lego Club, I told my kiddos to take photos of their minifigures going on adventures in their house.

So after we went over rules, I told my kiddos that we would... Continue Reading →

I often combine old ideas and make them into fresh new ones.  It's just a great way to still be creative when you haven't had any big new ideas in awhile.  So for this one I combined my Monster Maker Lego Club Challenge with my popular Disaster Island Lego Challenge.  So we made monsters based...

This is another one that might be kinda out there, but I'm really excited about this one.  I came up with this idea while researching a "Space Camp" I did over the summer.  Wonder Kids Activity Blog came up with an activity where kids tried to use tools underwater, since astronauts train underwater as it...

This one was a lot of fun!!  I saw a few posts about making Lego catapults, but I definitely wanted to put my own spin on it.  So after we went over rules, I told my kiddos that they would be building one wall and one catapult.  At the end of the hour, we would take... Continue Reading →
