Water Week Day 2: Build a LEGO® Water Wheel

Happy First Day of Summer! If you haven't joined in already, the official first day of the summer is the perfect excuse (if you need one!) to head outside and engage your kids in active, creative play with water. For Day Two of Creative QT Water Week, we're sharing a favorite activity from the blog Frugal Fun 4 Boys & Girls.  Keep reading to see how she made an outdoor LEGO® Water Wheel for her boys.

Head to her blog post to see the full tutorial and directions. Our variety back baseplates would work perfectly for this activity or if you wanted to make something more permanent the peel-and-stick baseplate collection upholds water great as well! 

Watch this video to see the water wheel in action!
