Thank you LEGO® Juniors for sponsoring this post. Looking for creative play ideas that will both challenge and inspire your 4-7 year old? Please visit https://www.lego.com/juniors
Encouraging creativity in your children is easier than you think. This holiday, as we weeded through the holiday lists of toys and games we knew would end up played with for a short while, we were sure to pick up some LEGO® sets for our younger children. Our 4 1/2 year old twins see their older brother play with his LEGO® sets and they are fascinated. Sometimes, those big sets are too complex. That’s why we decided on LEGO Juniors.
These sets are the perfect way to set young ones (ages 4-7) up for “success” and grow their independence, confidence and creativity. The products are perfectly matched to the building skills of their age.
What parent doesn’t love to see that “ah-ha” moment when their child accomplishes something like building a set independently? LEGO Juniors help kids with:
Learning to build
Bigger sets contain numbered bags with bricks for the different parts of the model. Your child can choose which part of the set to build first, and it’s easy to find the right bricks for the job. The manuals are super easy to follow and guide kids naturally.
Start playing straight away
Young children can’t wait to start playing! You know how they love ripping into boxes and getting started immediately. The sets include some premade pieces, like a shop wall or car chassis to help make the building process smoother, so your child can focus on the fun details and start playing right away.
LEGO Juniors is designed to provide just the right amount of challenge and creative play for children ages 4-7.
The intuitive, playful instructions help children build each part of the set and show lots of fun story and play ideas kids can recreate.
Want more creative play? Here are some more ideas:
- Encourage pretend play. Think superheroes! Make a cape or mask and explore different pretend play.
- Book & Craft – Read books and then allow your kids to express their ideas of the story through a craft, drawing, painting or more.
- Play with Your Food – Cooking can be creative. Make your food into characters, plan recipes and more.
- Brushless Painting – Experiment with painting with different objects around the house – i.e. bubble wrap painting, plastic forks, spoons, or even fruit/veggies.
But the most fun idea is building and creating, as with LEGO Juniors. As you encourage your kids to never give up, LEGO Juniors is right there with you, encouraging confidence and fostering independence.
Why would LEGO Juniors be a good fit for a child in your life?
