In January 2010, a Canadian homeschooling mom named Sam started a blog with a challenge for homeschooled kids to join in and create with Lego based on a theme. By 2012, she’d done 51 different challenges for her readers. There had been over 800 kids from all over the world playing along. Unfortunately, she decided it was time to step down, and finished up the fun after 2 busy and active years. You can see her blog, the challenges, and the amazing creations that the kids who joined in completed during those 2 years on her blog: Lego Quest Kids
In 2013, I decided to restart the challenge. We did monthly challenges for about 4 years before interest tapered off and I chose to close it up. Let me say this: Kids are amazing engineers and designers. I am amazed at what they can create when given a general direction to be inspired from!
Since I know there are a lot of people who are still interested in this challenge, I’m keeping the list of challenges that we complete below. You can see what everyone made in these various topics and be inspired to build your own.
