Lego Challenge- Make Something That Floats

Every Tuesday of 2016, I will share with you our Lego Challenge of the day. We invite you to join us and participate in the challenge with my family. Share your photos and comments with us so we can have fun together!

For today’s Lego challenge, I decided to do something a bit different than usual. This is what we did…

make something that floats

Each child started with an empty cup and had to scoop up some random blocks.  They could only work with the Legos in their cup for this challenge. They had 2 scoops each.

Using a minimum of 20 Lego pieces, they needed to build something, anything, that floats.

Once everyone was finished building, we tested them in the bathroom sink to see if they could float. Check and see how well they did…

We have 3 floaters and 3 happy kids. They did well!

Have fun with today’s Lego challenge.
