Step right up!!  This is one I've wanted to do for awhile!  I saw this post a long time ago about building a Lego target practice game.  I really liked that idea but wanted to build on it, so I came up with the idea of just building a BUNCH of different carnival games! So... Continue Reading →

Such an easy concept, but this one can get a little complicated fast.  I came up with this idea while looking out at my yard.  We have to take some trees out, and I instantly thought of tree forts.  I thought it would be really simple to build, but once I got started building my...

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...

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...

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 →

I explained that all... Continue Reading →

This one is another classic STEM challenge I repurposed for Lego Club.  After going over rules, I showed everybody a picture of a diving board, a crane, and an airplane wing.  Then I asked everyone what they all had in common.  An older kiddo eventually guessed that they were all cantilevers, which means that the...

WRECKING BALL TIME! https://gph.is/g/4wM2XvD I came up with this one when I saw this post, where kids use an apple as a wrecking ball.  But as always, I wanted to put my own spin on it and make it accessible to my Lego Club kiddos.  So after going over rules, I told my kids that...

The Holiday Train came through our town recently, so I thought it would be a great idea if we made one big train!  So after we went over rules, I told my kiddos that everyone would be making a train car!  They could make it a holiday train, but they could really make it anything. ...
