Lego Photo Challenge an Easy Holiday Activity

Lego Photo Challenge

In an attempt to get out in the sunshine and explore our local area I set my oldest children the Lego Photo Challenge. It is a simple idea. Take any Lego man or woman or superhero outside and take a photo of them anywhere you wish. They can use any camera. I often give them my phone to take photos with. It has a good Otterbox cover lol.

This is what they came up with.

Why I like the Lego Photo Challenge

It’s really creative. By encouraging them to use the surrounding environment and any props they might find they are using their imagination.

My children get bored. They especially get bored if they are walking somewhere that doesn’t interest them. This helps keep their attention and reduce the amount of moaning, whining and tantrums. Well from them, I can’t promise the same from me…

You don’t need to know the area you are in. If you’re doing the tourist thing think of the unique holiday photos you could end up with. How many times can your Lego character photo bomb?

If it’s raining it is a good indoors activity too. Get them colouring a backdrop or building a set out of Lego. Think Elf on the Shelf but with Lego characters and photos.

Have a go on your next holiday.
