Lego Number Race


We got a bunch of Mega Lego Blocks for Christmas this year. We made a game where I wrote the numbers, 1, 2, 3, 4, & 8 on little papers and put them on the couch. I sat at the table with the box of legos and handed them to LM one at a time. He would count the number of circles on the lego, run over to the couch and put it next to the corresponding number. We did this until all the blocks were gone. Then I had LM make towers out of each pile.

Hi, these are actually MEGA brand blocks, not LEGO. LEGO's brand for little ones (1.5 to 4 years is called DUPLO and can be found in the "Boys Construction Aisle at most mass retail stores.) :)
