Family Game Night inspired by LEGO

Over at Lemon Lime Adventures, we love Legos. In fact, we call our oldest son “Legoman” due to his infatuation with the toy. So when we were asked by Kelli to be part of her Family Game Night series, we knew exactly what game we would pick. Planning a Family Game Night inspired by Lego is easy to do. In fact, we made a whole day out of it.

Family Game Night Inspired by Lego.jpg e1395540340182 Family Game Night inspired by LEGOOur Family Game Night was full of Lego action, consisting of lego snacks, lego science experiments, a few rounds of store bought Lego games and an action packed homemade game of Hide and Go Seek 20 Questions using our favorite stuffed lego man.

Hide and Go Seek 20 Questions with Legoman

Hide and Go Seek with Legoman Family Game Night inspired by LEGOMaterials for Hide and Go Seek 20 Questions

Directions

  1. 1 Person is “it” and decides where to hide Legoman.
  2. The rest of the family ask yes or no questions to get clues.
  3. Everyone takes turns asking questions.
  4. Once Legoman is found, a new person becomes “it”.

It really is that simple. My husband likes to call it “Live Action 2o Questions”.

Sample Questions:

  1. Does Legoman like to read?
  2. Is Legoman downstairs?
  3. Is Legoman hungry?
  4. Is Legoman getting ready to leave?
  5. Is Legoman sleepy?
  6. Does Legoman like the dark?

The goal is to use positional, directional, and descriptive words to get clues to find Legoman. Playing Hide and Go Seek with 2o questions encouraged language development and spatial reasoning. For younger children, you might want to use picture clues, or limit the hiding to the same room they are in, instead of opening it to the whole house.

Hiding Legoman Can Be Just as Fun as Finding Him

Lego Hide and Seek for Family Game Night.jpg Family Game Night inspired by LEGOLegoman can hide anywhere. In our house, we like to hide him in plain sight doing activities we like to do. Think Elf on the Shelf, but with the kids using their imaginations to decide where he should be found next.

I am not sure if the boys have more fun hiding for finding. I do know that the whole family gets involved.

Even the baby, Super B. Family game night is a great way to encourage communication, bonding and problem solving between everyone in the family. Every time we play games together, I feel more at peace, more loving and more connected with my family.

What is your favorite game to play with your family? Have you made a game up with your children recently?

  5. Neat idea. We pkay a game similar to this–nice to be able to add to it. Pinning & sharing :)

  6. My son and his dad love Legos, but it never occurred to me that a cuddly stuffed Lego person could exist! We will have to look into this as our son also loves stuffed creatures.

    A couple of months ago, my son and I made up a game show for math practice, fun, and excitement. I was surprised at how long he wanted to keep playing this relatively simple game–and it was nice and easy for me while I was recovering from an illness.
