Learning with Legos


Lego and play dough are two of my son’s favorite ways to play. What could be more fun than combining the two?  I set up a very simple invitation to play with some of our home made play dough, a wooden rolling pin and few colorful Lego bricks. This took all of five minutes to set up and it proved to be a huge hit! This was a completely open-ended play invitation. My son was free to explore and take it in whichever direction he chose. What began as a sensorial activity, quickly evolved into imaginative play and story telling. It even included letter recognition and sight word practice. A perfect opportunity for learning through play!
