While club members must be 18 years of age or older, many members have children who also like to build with LEGO bricks. Here are some ideas and resources for parents looking for ways to engage with their children’s love of LEGO.
Offer young people open ended challenges to do with their LEGO bricks. Here are some examples:
- Build a shelter, chair, or bed for a stuffed animal or other character
- Create a holder for a phone or tablet for hands-free viewing
- Build how you feel about winter, friendship, school, etc.
- Make a scene that tells something about yourself – great ice-breaking activity
- Create a scene from a book that you like
- Create a vehicle to travel on land, in the air, and on water
- Make something that can be worn
- Make a map of a place – real or imaginary
