Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) February 22, 2014
Tired of LEGO pieces spread around the house? A DIY LEGO mat and amazing light activities have been released on Kids Activities Blog. Useful storage solutions and easy to do games will keep the household safe and sane this week.
Adults and kids alike will benefit from this great clean up LEGO and storage solution idea. Who would not want to clean up the LEGO mess in seconds? This project is a must for any LEGO crazy family if there is no space for a LEGO dedicated table in the house.
Before beginning the project decide about the size of the mat by considering the available play area in the living room and the amount of LEGOs in the house. Choose a sturdy fabric that can withstand hours and hours of wear and tear. Decorators fabric for upholstery and design are wider and sturdier than most regular fabrics.
After deciding on the size of the circle, let the kids figure out the circumference. The circumference will determine the size of the rope. A diameter of 5 feet for example requires a 16 feet rope.
Sew a 2 inch pocket around the perimeter of the circle and thread the rope inside it. Tie the rope ends together and ready is the LEGO storage and play mat.
The fun light games will excite kids of all ages. There are so many cool ways to play with light. A lot of these would be a perfect boredom buster to keep around in case of a power outage. But even with no reason at all, these light games are simply fun.
Lean how to make neon rice. This cool activity uses black light inside a sensory bin. Another amazing idea is inserting glow in the dark sticks inside ordinary balloons.
Play the classic game of tic tac toe by using a package of glow in the dark sticks. This game is perfect for dark rainy afternoons at home. Try a fun science experiment in color mixing on the light table. Let the kids be amazed by watching colors change while bubbling at the same time.
