About: "Every child is born blessed with a vivid imagination. But just as a muscle grows flabby with disuse, so the bright imagination of a child pales in later years if he ceases to exercise it" is one of my favor...

Intro: SS YM - Lego Tower

If you have a big tub of lego this is a really fun group activity for all ages.

Young Maker
For my young makers group (14 year olds) we challenged them to a race to make a free standing  lego structure that started from the ground and reached the 11 foot ceiling.

Sunday School
For my 9/10/11 year olds the challenge was just to make a connected lego structure that reached the ceiling. You could hop on a chair and help support it. Being Sunday School you also had to have a sword (aka hockey stick) with you at all times to protect you from being attacked by the Ammonites. The lego structure represented the wall of Jerusalem as supported by Nehemiah ... well too much information :)

I think you learn a fair amount about engineering and structures doing this.

    That is such a great idea! We need to do that at our church! I really like the towers!
