Are you ready to use your Laser Pegs® in a new way? These three games will combine your construction pieces with creativity and result in a fabulous way to spend quality time together:

Collaborative Build

For this game, gather your pieces together. One person snaps a brick to the 3D Lite Board, then it's another player's turn. Continue taking turns, adding one piece at a time, and see what you can build.

You could set a time limit (5 to 10 minutes), set a piece limit (50 to 75), or just build until all players declare the structure done. Take a picture of your creation and post it on the Laser Pegs® Facebook page—we'd love to see what you built!

Build in the Dark

Pick a category for your build, and then shut off the lights. Using only the light from the Laser Pegs®, each player builds something from that category. Here are some ideas to get you started:
• Buildings
• Vehicles
• Animals
• Jobs
• Outer Space
• Nature

Move and Build

This game encourages movement and is a fun way to burn off some energy in the cold winter months. Simply set a container of Laser Pegs® on one end of the room, then put the 3D Lite Board on the other end of the room.

Players must run across the room to get a piece before running back to the board and building. They can only select one piece at a time.

Instead of running, challenge your children to do the following on their way to the container:
• Walk
• Crawl
• Skip
• Bear walk
• Crab walk
• Slither like a snake
• Bunny hop
• Frog jump

Your children will get some exercise while building. They'll also have to plan what piece they're going to need, helping improve critical thinking skills.
