MAKE YOUR OWN PUMPKIN PATCH LEGO MAZE FOR FALL

FALL LEGO CHALLENGE

Because my son wanted to add a bonus challenge to this LEGO Maze, he added his own LEGO pumpkins. My son’s goal is to not only get the marble to the end of the maze but also to collect/visit each pumpkin along the way!

So if you like LEGO challenges, make sure you print out our FREE calendar for fall!

BUILDING LEGO MAZE

First of all, you need to gather your supplies and find bricks in fall colors! Building your own maze has endless possibilities, and I challenge you to come with your own design!

Most importantly make sure you leave an accurate space for your marble to roll through. When you start building, make sure to use a marble to measure the amount of space between the rows you create. Due to varying marble sizes, you might need to adjust the maze!

ADD PUMPKINS TO THE CHALLENGE

Of Course, you need to add pumpkins to your pumpkin patch LEGO maze! He used a 2×2 orange brick with either a round or cone-shaped 1×1 piece as the stem. They are quite cute. He placed them in various spots around the board. Later on, we decided to put a number on each one {use a small sticker or an erasable marker}.

Have you ever made a LEGO pumpkin “Spookley”?

MORE FUN WAYS TO ENJOY THE CHALLENGE

When he played with the pumpkin patch LEGO maze again, his new challenge was for me to call out numbers while he maneuvered the marble around to each one. Also, he wanted me to time him!

Our LEGO maze is awesome for developing visual and tracking skills especially with the added challenge of the pumpkins with or without numbers. In addition,  you can practice number recognition, addition, or subtraction with kids!
