Now I know dusty bricks can unlock these plays too!

  Lego is the most ideal educational and enlightenment toy for children all over the world. Almost every family will prepare several sets for their children. Children's creativity, imagination, and ability to resist frustration can all be developed while playing with Lego.

  However, I dare say that there are only a few people who can truly understand the essence of Lego. Every time you finish building your bricks, do they sit on your desk, bookshelf, or even under your bed gathering dust?

  In fact, this is all because the gameplay is wrong. If played correctly, Lego can not only help children learn to count, recognize colors and shapes, but also develop children's spatial and logical thinking skills and stimulate their intellectual development. When it comes to playing with LEGO, the only limit is your imagination.

So how do children of different ages play building block games?


1.Play Bowling

  LEGO bricks can actually be built and combined into different little toys. You may not be afraid of not being able to do it, but you may be afraid of not being able to do it.

  Stack the blocks high and secure them to the base while building a few more blocks and rolling them with a ball. Bowling is that simple.

  Modify it again and put the Lego pieces into the shape of a bridge to make an arch, and you can play golf.

There are also combination gameplay:


2.Building block track

  The LEGO Track uses a combination of tracks and bricks to allow children to roll a ball and watch its trajectory. Kids will love playing it over and over again.

  Don’t be afraid if there is no track. You can stick the bottom plate to the door or wall, use building blocks to build various arches and levels from top to bottom, and see which exit the ball will roll to in the end.


3.Pattern maze

  Try finding a larger base and let the children freely design the maze using a variety of building blocks.

The middle lane is more complex and more challenging to play.

  There is also a clearer and more intuitive way to play, which is to use all the building blocks to lay the lines, which also looks very good.

4.Balance Magic.

  Give your child 6-8 rectangular blocks, and he can build them however he likes and see how the resulting shape is firmly glued to the edge of the table. This game tests understanding of the concept of balance of power. There is no single answer. Check out these two successful looks below.



5.Table football battle

  This game can exercise your child's lung capacity. Various sports such as skipping rope, running, and swimming are related to lung capacity. From a very early age, you can use some small games to train with your children. Use building blocks to build a rectangular football field on the table. Remember to leave arches on both sides.

Then stick the two straws together and blow.

  Put the ping pong ball in the middle, and two people blow it to both sides to see who can blow the ping pong ball into the other side's arch first.

6.DIY practical small items

  In your free time on weekends, in addition to playing parent-child games with big building blocks, you can also take your children to use building blocks to make some commonly used items, which is both unique and rewarding.

  For example, the simple version of the mobile phone holder below has a very simple principle, that is, there are supporting blocks at the back and blocking blocks in the front.

  You can also make a bookend and put it on your child's desk, which is cool. In order to prevent sliding, it is best to use a bottom plate underneath.

  You can also make a simple cell phone amplifier. The key is to build a square structure with a hollow center. Put your phone in it and the sound will be much louder. If you don't believe me, just try it.

  Or you can make a cute photo frame and put your favorite photos in it. This will be very unique.


7.LEGO Light and Shadow Theater

  Set up a small projection theater like this and let your children explore the secrets of light and shadow.

  If you place the doll in different positions, the shadows appearing in the background will be completely different. The closer the doll is to the background board, the smaller the shadow it casts, and the further away from the background board the doll is, the larger the shadow it casts.At the same time, you can also make up stories and perform them with your children to exercise their language expression skills. Learn addition, subtraction and fractions.

  Once children understand the relationship between numbers and quantities, they can move on to learning addition and subtraction. I have to say that Lego is really useful when learning addition and subtraction.

  Not only can you use bricks, but you can also use LEGO minifigures. The left and right columns list superheroes that all boys like. Children can learn how many pairs add up to 10.

  The concept of using LEGO particles to represent wholes and parts is also very intuitive. Fractions are expressions of the concept of wholes and parts. As shown in the picture below, 6 bumps and 2 bumps are parts. When they are put together, a total of 8 bumps are formed. How much a part accounts for the whole is a fraction.

  After children understand the concepts of whole and part, it will be easier to understand fractions

Using Lego to demonstrate square numbers has become easy to understand.

8.Windmill and seesaw

  After the age of 6, you can take your children to explore basic mechanical principles, such as gears, levers, pulleys, wheels, axles, etc. You can also study force, buoyancy, balance, etc., and learn some physics knowledge by building concrete objects. For example, build a windmill and learn about the stable gear transmission structure and the conversion of kinetic energy and wind energy.

For example, set up a seesaw and learn the principle of leverage balance.
