If you know our family, then you know we love Lego around here. They’re great for building houses, planes, robots, cars… you name it and the kids will try to build it. Our next step is to get into the motorized version with gears and axels using the LEGO Technic Power Functions Set to be able to power some of their creations.
My son also has an affinity for mazes. He draws them with sidewalk chalk, in penpal letters, notes to put under my pillows. He follows them in activity books, like the awesome Usborne Very Big Maze Book, doodles them in all the pages in his math book, yeah, he’s just a little obsessed with mazes.
You put those two together and you get Lego Labyrinth! It’s built on top of a flat Lego board with multiple directions, blocked areas and twists and turns. Run a marble through the Lego maze and try to get it to the finish without hitting dead ends.
It looks easier than it is because the marble rolls pretty easy over the board once it gets going. Then you have to try to get yourself out of a blocked area.
Make it harder by using the smaller 1×2 Lego pieces and a larger board.
I’d love to see your creations. Post them in the comments on my Facebook page!
