17 Ways to Play with LEGO

By  | Last Updated:  

Sam and I have already spent a lot of time playing with LEGO. I can’t even begin to count the number of times we have built and taken down what he calls “LEGO City.” I swear he’s trying to put in a 40-hour work week with LEGO! Given his love for all things LEGO, I wanted to look for some LEGO games and activities that would be fun to do. I’ve found some great ones including balloon powered LEGO cars, a LEGO catapult, LEGO volcano, LEGO parachute, LEGO zip line, LEGO play dough mat, activities for playing with LEGO in water as well as freezing LEGO in water and excavating it. I’ve even found a great tutorial for creating a watermelon LEGO. You’re going to want to LEGO and do these right away!
