Sunday Reflections: Learning With LEGO

It's no secret that my favorite toys are LEGO sets. There are just so many possibilities, you can really let your imagination run wild. If you don't like coming up with your own creations you can always just follow the directions and still have a fun old time, all whilst developing your brain.

 Here's what the kids came up with.

LEGO bricks aren't solely for the mind, they can be a tool in the hands of God! Today we used a Primary activity we found at Sugar Doodle. We split the children into groups and had them choose one of 2 bags. One bag is labeled "bad choices" and one is labeled "good choices." The bad choices bag was filled with twigs and a glue stick, while the good choices bag was filled with LEGO pieces. We then asked the children to build a house with the materials provided. Needless to say, they much preferred building with the good choices bag.

          "I like her hair better this way!"

What lessons have LEGO sets and other cool toys taught you?


  1. I know LEGO taught me to pick up my toys before I left the room and turned off the lights. Nothing gets your attention faster than many, many sharp bricks sticking you in the feet.

  2. Ah yeah, I've learned thar lesson! Actually, I've relearned it a few times. Not fun!
