We‘re excited to share with you with the launch of this wonderful book The Unofficial Guide to Learning With LEGO®!
Here’s a little about the book. A few of my fellow bloggers came up with great ideas to play with LEGO® Bricks and launched their book on July 5th, 2016. The book has a collection of 100 activities using LEGO® Bricks with colorful pictures that will attract kids instantly. It is a great resource for kids to learn Fine motor skills, Problem solving and STEM activities using LEGO® Bricks. The instructions are very simple and easy to read; even my 8 year old was able to follow. There are activities for every age group, right from toddlers to elementary age kids.
100+ Ideas to play with LEGO® Bricks
We were lucky to get a free sneak peek copy to try and my little one couldn’t wait to dive in. Honestly, he wanted to do everything in the book except for the sorting and counting ones .He said “Mom ,these activities are for toddlers .” We tried a couple activities and here I share one of our favorite activity from the book .
The Floating Boat Experiment:
Empty Shallow Dish / Bath Tub
Bricks (any variety)
Ask your child to build a boat that can hold the most pennies .They can design a boat of their choice using any variety of LEGO® Bricks. My son spent some quality time in designing his boat.
Fill the dish with enough water for your boat to float and later add pennies to your boat.
Now count how many pennies your boat can hold. The more coins we added ,the boat became heavier and sunk in .
My son was totally engaged in the process for couple of hours .I thought it was perfect for Summer time learning .
Lessons Learnt :This activity helps children develop skills in Science, Math, Problem Solving and Engineering.
If you have a LEGO® Fan in your house, I am sure you wouldn’t want to miss out on these 100 hands on learning activities from the book.
