We love finding fun ways to use toys and blocks in different ways. As part of our Camp Mom Summer Camp at Home we're playing and creating with LEGO bricks this week!
This spray the LEGO game is easy to set up and helps kick off more play!

Can LEGO bricks go in water?
Yes! According to LEGO, "Standard LEGO® bricks are not harmed by water. Some specially designed one-piece boat hulls will even float on the surface of water, although most LEGO® creations will not."

What you need:
- LEGO or DUPLO bricks
- Box or laundry basket to put your bricks on (we got ours at The Dollar Store)
- Spray bottles
How to get started
- Collect some LEGO or DUPLO bricks and bring them outside
- Set up some boxes or laundry baskets and turn them upside down to be tables.
- Build LEGO creations/towers on the baskets.
- Spray the LEGO creations down!
After kids spray down their creations they can build again and make taller or smaller towers.
This activity lets kids work on problem solving skills and is so easy to adapt for different ages.
Smaller kids can stand closer to their towers and older kids can move further away (or add other elements) to make it more complicated.

What are the best LEGO bricks to use for this activity?
For toddlers and preschoolers, we love our LEGO duplo all in one box! Although different themed sets of LEGO are fun, this box allows for so much open ended play because it has a lot of variety.
For kids ages 4+ we love our LEGO classic brick box. This colorful brick box allows for lots of creative pretend play!
