STEAM Activity: Lego Ghost
Updated: Dec 12, 2021
Happy October STEM Sparkers! I hope you've been doing well. Our family has been busy (we took a trip to Northern Arizona for Jack's fall break; it was lovely), and I personally am slowly recovering from that sinus infection and RA flare that started this summer. I have gotten some of my energy back, and it's nice just focusing on my health, family, and the day job-- I admit I don't miss the blog as much as I thought I would. I will probably continue to post about once a month since I still have of lots of STEM and STEAM ideas. But doing the activities with Jack and not having to photograph and document each activity for the blog has been great-- just enjoying the moment, you know?
And speaking of enjoying the moment, Halloween is right around the corner! If you haven't guessed by now, Jack and I love Halloween (Bobby enjoys holidays where he can bake and cook)! Jack recently built some Halloween Lego ornaments we got from the Lego store, and that had me recall a time when we went to the Lego Discovery Center (around Halloween time). At the Lego Discovery Center, they had various build stations where kids and their families could build a pumpkin, witch and/or ghost. Then they could take their spooky Halloween creations home! It was lots of fun, and it inspired me to re-create the Lego build experience at home. So without further ado, here's how STEM Sparkers can build an easy, Lego ghost at home!
I'd like to note that we used whatever Lego bricks we could find in our disorganized Lego bins, and my friend told me it looked like a snowy owl (before finding out that it was supposed to be a ghost). That made me laugh. So it's a good example of how subjective the art part is of this STEAM activity. :D Happy Halloween and happy STEM-ing dear readers!
