Ahh… Legos. Children love legos! Hosting a Lego Club can be a win-win situation for children, staff, and parents alike. They bust boredom, keep children engaged, encourage imagination, and reinforce tactile and building skills. The activity possibilities are endless. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
1) Lego Quest – This was an awesome Pinterest find. Check out the resource blog page here.
What is Lego Quest?
Lego Quest is a non-competitive, creative building challenge resource for LEGO loving kids.
When can you use Lego Quest?
It works great outdoors or indoors and doesn’t require too much space. Just lots of legos. Be sure to sort them into several bins so small groups can work with them.
2) Candy Lego Building – Children will enjoy building with candy blocks and then when they’re all done you can pack them up in a zippie bag for them to take home and play with (or eat!) later.
3) Design a Lego Person
Now this activity is just precious. All you have to do is provide a blank lego person template such as this one, and glue, markers, construction paper, and scissors, and let the children go to town. They can design their very own lego person. You’ll be delightfully surprised at their creativity. I’ve seen ‘Mini-Me’ Lego People, Darth Vader Lego People, and even Rapunzel. The sky’s the limit.
