Play & Learn

Building with LEGO® and Duplo® is more fun when you build as a family! Here's a few tips on how to get started building with your child

TELL STORIES

You could encourage your child to make up a story about their LEGO creations. They could film a scene to create a stop motion or short film of their tale. Or they could invent an adventure in which they’re the star and create a LEGO avatar.

CREATIVE CHALLENGES

You could challenge them to a timed build – give them a set number of bricks and a time limit such as 10-15 minutes and see what they create. You could give them a fun theme such as sport, animals or cars.

LEGO GAMES

Have fun playing a brick building game together. You could take it in turns to build an object, animal or character for the other one to guess, and you can ask questions to help you solve the brick clue.

SHOWCASE CREATIONS

Why not encourage your child to share their creations? Display favourite builds or new creations; create a colourful podium out of bricks; or share a photo on our Facebook page – we’d love to see what you’ve created!

TELL STORIES

You can use DUPLO bricks to help bring a story to life – real or imaginary, long or short. It doesn’t matter if the bricks are the right colour, shape or size, DUPLO bricks can become anything you imagine: a rocket on a space mission, a lion in a jungle adventure, or a whale exploring the ocean!

EXPLORE THE WORLD

Little builders love exploring. Playing with DUPLO bricks helps your child learn about the world. You could talk about colours and shapes, or create DUPLO animals – such as a pig, sheep or horse – and have fun guessing their names and making their animals noises.

DUPLO GAMES

You are your child’s first playmate, why not have fun creating games when you are building together? You could play Hide and Seek with your DUPLO creations, or counting games with bricks.

PRETEND PLAY

Pretend play helps children develop their imagination – why not have fun playing characters, they could be from fantasy or real life? You could use DUPLO bricks to create fun props – such as a tiara, glasses or a magnifying glass – and talk in a silly voice when you play the character.
