I'm sure you are better at using Lego than I am and have far more creative ideas than me. If you want to, why not have a go at these challenges and prove it! If you produce a really good one, take a picture of it and send it (or ask a grown up to help you) to firstname.lastname@example.org for me to see!
Wow, there were some fabulous builds from last week's challenge - have a look at some of the photos below!
This week's challenge is a very different idea - a mash-up! Create a vehicle mash-up where the front of one is joined to the back of something else. The stranger and sillier the better! You could have half lorry, half submarine or half boat, half aeroplane or half ambulance, half tank - get creative. See if you can get a minifigure 'driving' it too! For those of you who like building cars, trains, boats and things, this one is for you! The tricky bit is how you join the two - try to 'merge' the two so the whole thing works. You could use existing kits you already have and work out how to join two halves.
I've had a go at building one - here's my half racing car half helicopter! I added a stormtrooper who is driving (as you know I like Star Wars). The hardest bit was the helicopter - I didn't have enough curved pieces, but I think it joins up OK. I just used red and white to show the two halves. See what you can do!
For the first challenge we'll keep it simple - try and create an animal just using Lego. It could be anything; an animal on the land, underwater or in the sky, it could fly, swim, run or walk. Any colours, any size.
I have had a go at making a rhino! I had lots of grey Lego and I found a piece that I could use for the horn - that gave me the idea of doing a rhino. The grey is a bit of a boring colour so I added a little bird on its back to brighten it up! If you look closely at the photo you will see it's in my office so you can see I didn't cheat and copy a picture from the internet! But the internet has lots of ideas so you could search for a lego animal and try to copy! See what you can make.
