Set up a makeshift movie studio using a smartphone or tablet to capture each frame, and let the kids bring their LEGO® creations to life. It’s a fantastic way to encourage storytelling, problem-solving, and patience.

Build a Marble Maze:

Set a theme or prompt – such as “build a futuristic city” or “create your favourite animal” – and let the kids’ imaginations run wild. Encourage them to work together or compete individually to see who can come up with the most creative and innovative design. Don’t forget to snap photos of their creations and share them on social media using #WeBuyBricks.

Build a Storybook:

Once they’re done building, encourage them to write a story to accompany their creations. It’s a wonderful way to foster literacy skills and unleash their creativity in a whole new way.

Design a Treasure Hunt
