Encouraging Outdoor Play with LEGO

Child with lego minifigJune is national Celebrate Outdoor month and I am always looking for ways to encourage my kids to get off the sofa and outside. It is often hard to pull them away from video games or electronics, so instead of fighting that battle, I’m using their favorite play things to my advantage.

The one toy my kids CANNOT get enough of is LEGO.  I’ve written about how much it means to me that my kids play with LEGO building sets just like I did as a kid, and even as they get older, they still love them!

This little mini-fig is the key to my kids getting outside!  You may not think of it, but LEGO are perfect for encouraging outdoor play.

My kids make up backstories for all their mini-figs and let them stalk through the tall grass just outside of their travel trailer.

If you haven’t considered encouraging your kids to take their LEGO builds outside, I’d strongly encourage you to at least let them try.  It will LITERALLY open up a whole new world of adventure for them!Child with lego minifig

Thank you to LEGO for providing a building set for this post.  My kids were thrilled!
