What you need:

  • A bowl of single-colored Legos for each player
  • A dice
  • A flat surface or Lego surface

What to do:

  1. Have player 1 roll the dice.  If he or she rolls a 4, he or she can stack 4 Legos onto a tower. (Note:  You may want to point out to your kids that some Legos are thicker and therefore make a taller tower.)
  2. After a given number of turns (ie. 10), whoever has the tallest tower wins.
