Like making LEGO journals or books for each of the kids to make and take home. I saw this Pin about invitations from an amazing LEGO birthday party and thought - "this is so simple and sweet, my kids could even help make this." Then I thought, "but I don't need invites. How can I connect LEGOs and Literacy?"
Viola! I made a set of LEGO journals or books (however you end up using them) for the kids.
1. I cut 2 pieces of construction paper and 5 sheets of white computer paper into fourths
2. Then I sandwiched a stack of 5 white rectangles between 2 colored papers and stapled on one side. (Do this 4 times)
3. Cut a bunch of small circles using another piece of matching construction paper.
4. Glue 6 circles to the front like a LEGO (similar to the invites!)
5. Admire your work!
6. Share with the kiddos you love!
What is awesome about these little books is that they are easy to make and can be used for a variety of purposes.
- A build and draw your creation journal
- A storybook using the characters from your Duplo Kits
- A word book (draw a picture and write the word underneath)
- A sticker book
- A Lego math book (again, see all the Pinterest ideas and you can adapt them into this little book!)
Or this one! I saw this Pin about a mural as a backdrop which is actually a creation of Anders Ruff Custom Designs from an Out of this WORLD LEGO Party. I am not that talented, but thought, "Hey, a simple version of this idea with words on it connected to our book theme and a set of dot-markers would make a great art station for our Busy Farm Duplo Playdate." So I admit that mine isn't half as cute as theirs, but the kids didn't mind one bit! My cost = $ 0.22 + a little time.
Have you been inspired by any of the LEGO pins? IF so, what have you made???
