Thanks to my my son’s recent Lego project for school, I now possess an almost encyclopedic knowledge of the nearly 58 year old small plastic bricks. Of which every person on Earth owns an average 86. And you’d need 40 billion to build a column to the moon. And with just six eight-stud bricks, you could make more than 915 million different combinations… assuming you had a fair bit of time on your hands.
So this week, I’m putting our homework to good use and sharing some awesome Duplo and Lego activities for kids. You might make a Lego balloon car, practise patterns and counting with Duplo, spell with Lego letters or try some Legoscience with minifigure ice excavations.
