Learning To Play ~ My Experience With #LEGODUPLO

When I took on the #LEGODUPLO challenge earlier this month I didn’t realize how beneficial it would be for my girls as well as for myself. We are nearing the end of the 30 Day Challenge and have had so much fun as a family building LEGO creations, role playing with the toys they have built and just having an overall amazing time! Here are some photos from the past month:

And those are just a few! Call me naive, but I had no idea so many fun and unique creations could be made with simple LEGO DUPLO bricks. They have quickly become one of our favorite toys and are part of the daily rotation. Not only are they fun, they fuel the imagination, introduce children to colors, numbers and letters (depending on the sets you buy) and are engaging for adults as well.

I have spent more time on the floor playing with my girls then I have in a very long time.  You can only play dolls and tea parties for so long, so this has been a welcome change. It is also incredibly satisfying to watch your child as they build. You can almost see their little imaginations and brains working!

Today’s Parent has done an incredible job putting together a whole slew of play ideas which you can view here (parents have even chipped in providing some of their favorite play ideas too!). There is still one day left and all of the previous challenge are available on Today’s Parent if you want to take a peek. I have plans to print out the challenges and put them in a binder for future reference.

    Love it!
    Beautiful creations (and beautiful photos mum!). I missed the Lego Duplo challenge but just checked out the link – what a wonderful idea.
    Also check out the Lego Quest Kids site if you want more directed play challenges – Sam has a great system running.
    Thanks for sharing :-)
