Legos @ the Library: Games!

What is going on in this picture?

A Lego contraption (much like a top) is spinning on the table.  There are several small pieces in the bucket on top of the contraption.  To play the game, simply guess how many pieces will stay in the bucket.  If you guess correctly, you win–hooray!  If you don’t guess the right number, you have to pay a small fee (17 cents…you can use imaginary money).

This was just one of the games created on the fly at today’s Lego program.

Here’s a pet store that sells owls, cats, and parrots.  They also sell swords, which was convenient because there was an awesome boat nearby in need of pets and weapons.


Many of today’s projects were a team effort, which is always nice to see.

Two Lego builders construct the pet store.

Here’s the aforementioned “awesome boat” and some of its construction team:

And here is a close up of the boat:

Have you come up with any fun Lego games?  I’d love to hear about them in the comments!

  1. Hi Abby,
    I can’t thank you enough for your posts! I am a third grade teacher, have always loved Legos, and I’m a lifelong book nerd. Your blog continues to inspire me, just knowing there are other people out there who keep children thinking and engaged. Keep up the great work!
    Beth 🙂

    • Beth,

      Thank you for your kind words! I really enjoy writing the blog, and it’s always great to hear that there are people out there who believe in kids, books, and Legos 🙂

      Do you incorporate Legos into your lesson plans? Do you have a book club (or something similar) for your students? I’m always looking for great ideas to “borrow”

      Thanks for your comment and hope you are well!
