Kids Building Challenge

This kids building challenge will keep your kids busy for at least an hour. It is super fun and creative.

Some days go by so slowly. It seems like you’ve done everything there is to do with your kids. They are crabby and don’t know what to do.

The other day when I was playing Legos with my kids they got tired of building after only 10 min. I used all my mommy brain power and came up with the idea to use all the Legos in the box to create one tower. I’m constantly trying to find different ways to play with toys. It helps keep things interesting. We used literally every Lego. The goal was to create something using all the Legos and no matter how many times you do this activity you’ll never get the same result twice.

For our building challenge we used Mega Blocks Minis. We have the big box but also some Dora and Diego sets as well. You could use any type of Legos. If you are using small Legos and have a large collection, I would suggest taking a large mixing bowl and randomly scooping out a bowl full of Legos. Then use all the Legos in the bowl to create something.

We started out with some of the flat Lego pieces and began to build up and out. When we ran out of space to place more Legos we simply added on a new section.

Some of the block were difficult to fit on the tower but that pushed my kids and I to be creative. We had cars hanging off the side and even added a zip line.

Here’s the end result. My kids were so proud of what they had created.

    That turned out so precious!
    My 4yo keeps demanding that we only use the small legos, but I think that this would still be a fun, feasible adventure. Getting them apart might just be a nightmare though….

    Either way, I’m going to have to test this out and let you know how it goes, because there’s absolutely nothing worse than a rainy day where we have no idea how to keep her entertained.
    You might just be a lifesaver!

    Oh, I love this! I have a three-year-old and he loses interest so quickly. We have the mega blocks so I’ll have to help him add more toys to his structures to make cities. How did you make the zipline? That sounds like a fun way for Batman to move around Mega Block City!
