Did you know that six eight-stud (2×4) LEGO® Duplo® bricks can be connected in 915,103,765 different ways!

Using just six LEGO® Duplo® bricks children and students can develop their sensory, physical and social skills in a cost-effective and age-appropriate way here at the library, at home or at school.

Below The LEGO Foundation shares the skills that children practice when they are engaged and challenged in playful ways:

  • Language skills: such as describing in rich detail, giving clear instructions, explaining their reasoning, and telling stories, which help to communicate with others and express their ideas
  • Problem solving skills: staying focused, remembering a task or a challenge, setting goals and making plans, coming up with creative ideas, and reflecting on what they did and how they did it
  • Collaboration skills: as in working together in pairs or teams, sharing turns and the materials they are working with, learning from peers and their ideas, and giving one another roles and responsibilities

Building blocks build futures!
