Balancing Marbles on LEGO® DUPLO® helps children develop fundamental skills such as fine motor control, hand & eye coordination, patience and concentration.
This is so much fun and engaging for children as they try to manipulate marbles and get them to balance on the small circles on the LEGO® DUPLO® bricks.
What you will need?
You will need LEGO® DUPLO® bricks and marbles. Other block sets would also work for this activity.
We placed the Lego bricks out on the table with a small basket of marbles, Miss 4 built her own structures using the LEGO® DUPLO® to balance the marbles on.
Balancing Marbles on LEGO DUPLO Bricks is so much fun and engaging for children as they are set with the challenge to manipulate the marbles and get them to balance on the small circles on top of the LEGO® DUPLO® bricks. This activity can also be turned into a game, where two children are taking turns to balance one marble at a time on the LEGO® DUPLO® bricks and try not to knock over any of the other balancing marbles. The aim of the game is to try not to knock over any of the balancing marbles….but it is so much fun when they do and fall into a fit of laughter.
Balancing Marbles on LEGO® DUPLO® is a fun activity that children can share with a friend while developing important fundamental skills. Playing games also provides children with the opportunity to learn important social skills such taking turns, overcoming challenges and developing problems solving skills which build self-esteem.
