What can you make with 80 LEGO Bricks?

Did you know that there are 80 LEGO bricks for every person on earth?

 Wow! That's a LOT of LEGO!!

With the amount of LEGO in our house I think I've stepped on at least 80 in my time!

We were recently sent some LEGO goodies and challenged to see what we could build with exactly 80 LEGO bricks.

When the lovely package arrived we opened it to find...

...a fabulous red LEGO Storage brick, 80 LEGO bricks, a building platform and a picture of a funky looking clown that we were challenged to create.

As you may know my five year old, Ben is a huge LEGO fan and despite struggling with his fine motor skills in other areas of life, he is a pretty skilled little builder
However with just a picture to go by and no step by step instructions he did need a little help from Mummy!

 We had a really fun morning creating this clown together, which Ben quickly named his 'robot clown' and he loved playing with it afterwards, especially the moving arms!

Along with this challenge were sent a 2 Brick LEGO Storage box, I was really interested to check this out properly as I having been considering purchasing some of these for a while to store Ben's growing collection of bricks. 

LEGO Storage bricks

It is made from good quality plastic and has plenty of room for a child's collection of LEGO and if you decide to purchase more than one they stack on top of each other too! They are are a great storage solution that will look fantastic in any child's room. 

I was so impressed that when I saw them on offer in Tesco last week, I couldn't resist buying the 4 brick version for Elizabeth's Duplo too! A bargain at just £9! (why not check out our LEGO Duplo Number Train review ) 

We had lots of fun making our #80LEGObricks creation, why not join in and see what you can create from exactly 80 LEGO Bricks and share yours with the hashtag #80LEGOBricks on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

We were sent these products to review free of charge as members markettiers4dc Parenting Broadcast Blogger Network but all opinions are our own.
