Hold a mini Lego-building contest

Lego the movie is reportedly in the works and while kids will probably have to wait at least a year, you can remind them now how much they love the toy with a building contest.

Consider bringing over a couple of your child's friends and challenge everyone to build the most intricate, largest or visually pleasing Lego house. Set a time limit for the contest, for example, they have 20 minutes to pick out brick and 30 minutes to build.

Make sure each child has a base and their own building space to prevent squabbles. You're probably better off not mixing each child's Lego kits together, as they may become agitated and to prevent this allow each child to use his or her own bricks.

For little artists, encourage them to draw a picture of their designs after building to display with the finished piece.

When the structures and pictures are finished, ask an impartial observer to judge - perhaps another parent, older brother or sister. Award each child a prize for his or her specific features, for example, best house, most interesting garden and so on.

Afterwards, provide a lunch with brick-shaped food such as sandwiches cut to oblong shapes, chunky pieces of pepper and blocks of banana and peanut butter.
