Summer days can either zip by or crawl by at a snail's pace. While my older two kids are at summer camp this week, I've been having fun with my toddler and preschooler. One of the activities I tried with my preschooler this week was LEGO I-Spy!
LEGO I-Spy uses only a few materials and you can do it with whatever type of LEGO or LEGO DUPLO bricks that you have. My son had fun playing this I-Spy game again and again.
MATERIALS NEEDED FOR LEGO I-SPY
- play sand
- large plastic tub
- LEGO Duplo or LEGO bricks
HOW TO DO LEGO I-SPY
Start by hunting through your LEGO sets to figure out what pieces you want to use for I-Spy. Next, build anything you want and then draw a picture of each item that you build. I used markers to color mine in.
Once you have several cards ready, you are set to play!
To play I-Spy we went outside to my sand pit (you can really use anything in a sensory tub) and then I buried all of our LEGO creations in the sand while my son wasn't looking.
Next, my son picked a picture of an object that we wanted to hunt for and he started digging! Once he found the correct item, we held it up next to our card to see if it was a match!
We continued matching items to the cards until they were all found.
Easy peasy lemon squeezy (is my favorite thing to say) when we finish up a game or a project and the kids had fun with it!
Alright, now it is your turn! Do you have any other favorite LEGO themed games or activities we should add to our LEGO Week snack/lunch schedule?
