Kids Vs Grownups Challenge | LEGOLAND Discovery Center

Summer fun’s not over yet… In fact, it’s just getting started! WAHOO! Whether you’re 5 or 95 years old, LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre wants YOU to let your imagination run wild, and your building, - even wilder! We’re calling on all little LEGO® lovers, mini-makers and master builders in the making to help us answer the age-old question… When it comes to using your imagination, who takes the win, kids or adults!?

Studies suggest that creativity starts to decline rapidly as kids near adulthood, as early as in elementary school. We’re calling on parents to put their creative building skills to the test with Kids vs. Grownups challenges all summer long. By challenging kids to build-offs that get them thinking and creating, YOU can teach them to navigate the world using hands-on learning and imagination, outside the (LEGO) box!

So why is creativity SO important?!

  1. Creativity in kids encourages critical thinking and problem solving skills.
  2. It helps foster adaptability, curiosity and the importance of learning through asking questions, like, “How can I use LEGO bricks to build my dream house?” or “What makes this racecar go?!”
  3. It helps build future leaders! Creativity was cited as the #1 “leadership competency” of the future by Newsweek.
  4. Most importantly, creativity teaches kids to remember that mistakes happen, and that’s A-okay!
