The Budding Engineer: Lego Bridge Project

Now that Buggle can read he really prefers to spend his roomtime with his nose in a book. This is all very good but since I don’t want him to only spend time in his mind I’ve been looking for things for him to do on his own in his room that exercise his analytic and experimental/creative skills.

Lego projects are always good so I’ve been pinning them to my Buggle boards and giving them to him as prompts when he needs some inspiration.

The other day I gave him this (part of the idea is to give him some practice with problem solving).
