Challenge your child to build a LEGO maze for a hexbug. We used white LEGO bricks for a fun winter theme. I get commissions for purchases made through the affiliate links in this post.
Build a Hexbug LEGO Maze
I first shared this idea in the Inspiration Laboratories newsletter. Each issue has hands-on science explorations for children, a recap of our latest activities, and special resources selected just for you! (And it’s free.) Sign up here.
Grab your LEGO bricks to design a maze for a hexbug. (You could also use a ball, a marble, a car, or any toy you’d like.) Use a LEGO base plate to help keep the maze walls intact or you can build directly on the floor or table.
Add turns and dead ends to your maze. You can vary the difficulty of the maze by adding more wrong paths. If you’re building the maze with or for young children, stick to a simple path with few or no wrong turns.
For our maze, we used white LEGO bricks on a grey base plate. We created our path to be 3 bricks wide. This was just wide enough for a hexbug. Make sure your path is wide enough for your car/toy. Double check your turns and adjust the path as needed.
