Build-a-Brick Monster!

Did you know that pumpkin decorating stickers and dry erase markers are the perfect way to add a spook-factor to your kids' monster brick builds?! Here's a great little activity to enjoy as a family over the Halloween period.

 

Build-a-Brick Monster!

 

Materials Needed:

  • building bricks- we used Mega Bloks as the stickers we got were pretty big
  • dry erase markers- the fine tip ones work best
  • pumpkin decorating stickers- we got large foam ones from the Walmart Halloween aisle

This is so quick and easy to set up, but the creative possibilities are endless! Spend time together building bright and bold monsters with the Mega Bloks. Your kids will love the STEM nature of this task! We chose to use Mega Bloks as we had large stickers to use, plus our youngest builder is only 18 months old so larger bricks helped to include her! You can use DUPLOs or LEGOs to build the monsters as well.

Once the monsters are built, enjoy getting creative with the dry erase markers and stickers to add features and spooky details.

Even younger members of the family can join in with the building and we guarantee they won't shy away from pretending to be a monster!
