If you want to turn your Legos into feats of engineering, look no further than the Lego Chain Reactions Book.
This instruction book comes with an assortment of 33 Lego pieces as well as several pages of punch out accessories. These pieces accompany written and visual instructions to make ten different Lego machines. Each building project takes 15-30 minutes to complete. The first project uses only elements included with the book. After that, you’ll need to raid your own Lego supply for various pieces. Depending on how long your Lego search takes, it can add significantly to the assembly time.
But you get a big payoff for all that searching. My five year old son received a copy of this book for his birthday. He needs help to complete the most advanced projects at the end of the book, but had no trouble with the first set of instructions to make something called a Quintopple. He was so pleased to send the small ball rolling down the ramp, and set it up repeatedly and showed it off to anyone who would watch.
If you love Genius Lego Inventions and want more ideas for putting your Legos to work, look no further than your child’s collection of Lego pieces and this inventive book of machine ideas.
