Build a Lego Figure Spelling Game

post may contain affiliate links.
We've been on a roll the past few weeks sharing a couple new hands-on ways for your child to practice his/her spelling list, and today I am sharing yet another idea that was a big hit with my son!

Why, you ask?

It involved Legos.

It is a game.

It is similar to hangman.
Thus, we practiced his latest spelling list with a little game called, Build a Lego Figure.

However, the catch is is that you do not want to build a Lego figurine!  But building a mis-matched Lego figurine was half the fun!

What you need:
Spelling List
Lego figure pieces.
We used a tray that was divided into six compartments.  In each compartment was a group of Lego pieces: legs, bodies, heads, hats, miscellaneous pieces, and a couple of cars my son built.

With these pieces, my son had six chances to pick the correct letters to spell one of his spelling words.  So if you guessed a letter that was not in the word, he had to choose a Lego piece.  We continued until he had a Lego figure built and/or he correctly spelled or guessed the word!
As I mentioned, it was a big hit with my son and I'm sure we'll be practicing his spelling words like this a lot more!
