10 ways to play with DUPLO

DUPLO and LEGO are some of the main toys we play with, and so end up being used for more than just building. These are our favourite play ideas.

How about some printing using paint with bricks and people?

Or create a sensory scene with slimy Spaghetti. This was so much fun, and easier to clean up than the paint.

Then you could clean up with a DUPLO themed bath?  While in the bath you could work out how many bricks long your feet and hands are?

Make a game of  Guess Who, we used normal LEGO men for this with a big wall, but you could use DUPLO people as well.

Do some simple sums. This is a great way for children to visualise what is going on as they start to do simple maths.

Add some sand for small world play. I think Buzz needs rescuing here.

Make a track for a Zhu Zhu pets or cars. This was brilliant as the Zhu Zhu pets managed to go around the corners themselves.

Make some fancy patterns. You could also make some simple patterns with bricks in a row.

    We recreated our new house with them and named the rooms when we moved, it helped our autistic son know what each room was and handle the change a bit better. Also he recreated Mario party levels.
