The Dinosaur Dig Challenge
For this challenge you will need a grey Lego plate and some dinosaurs (Lego or otherwise):
You'll also need some devoted Paleontologists with their trusty digging tools:
Then challenge your child to choose a dinosaur from their collection. Have your child layer white Lego building bricks in a formation that matches the dinosaur.
In the end the dinosaur toy should match the brick shape.
The final result allows the child to then play at the dig site. This activity will provide hours of fun and helps challenge your child to think of creative engineering approaches to building the shapes. You won't be hearing "I'm bored" for at least an hour or two with this activity.
