Lego Challenge- Make Something That Floats

Source: Lego Challenge- Make Something That Floats

 

 

Saw this post this morning from Gather Love Grow.  It looked like a lot of fun, and was something I knew our boys would enjoy. I asked Lynn to let the 3 older boys make boats today after they finished school.  Then we float tested them after I got home from work.  All 3 of them sort of floated.  They didn’t sink to the bottom of the water, but they didn’t exactly stay at the top.  The best floater was created by our 6 year old.  It floated nicely at the top of the water for several seconds before capsizing.

Then things got a bit crazy.  They wanted to try and float many different combinations of Legos.  Eventually, all the water got spilled all over the table, floor, and our 4 year old.

This was definitely a fun challenge.  I would encourage you to go to the originating blog and check it out.
