One of the thing on our blue list for earning tokens is "building"...with the stipulation that the building be appropriately challenging. We have an awesome construction kit, but it requires a lot of adult guidance. I was looking for some building challenges that Toa could tackle all on his own.
I found this awesome blog called Lego Quest.
It looks like the blog takes a break during the summer, but that's ok. We went back to quest #1 and just started from the beginning. (Ok, I lied. Technically, we went back to quest #2. The first quest was "build a car". Toa proclaimed that he built lots of cars all the time and that this was not new or challenging.)
Quest #2 is monochromatic.
Pick a colour, any colour, and use only that colour of Lego.Toa went off to build the Statue of Liberty.
Build anything. The sky is the limit. A structure, a sculpture, functional, non-functional, anything at all, but you can only use one colour!
I'll post a photo up when he is done.
I really love the list of quest ideas on Lego Quest site. It Works for Me!
