Six Bricks is a hands-on tool for learning. Through fun and short activities with sets of LEGO® DUPLO® bricks in six bright colours, children can practice their memory, movement, creativity and more.

As part of the Ladybirds STEM in a Box kit, each ladybird has received a set of LEGO Foundation Six Bricks.  During the Octagon camp they will engage in a Six Bricks Workshops and discover some of the amazing activities made possible by just six LEGO bricks!

This booklet contains 25 activites for you to try at home, enjoy!

STEM in a Box - BricQ Motion Essentials

Also included in the Ladybirds Octagon kit is a STEM in a Box - LEGO Education BricQ Motion Essentials set.  This fantastic set will enable ladybirds to discover STEM, through the use of LEGO with a sports themed activity (perfect timing with the Olympics currently taking place!).

This activity is for the ladybirds to engage in at home, in their own time.  There are instructions to build the model included in the set.  LEGO Education also have a fantastic video series to guide you through the lesson, enabling you as the parent to discover STEM with your children. (please note registration (free) on the LEGO website is required to view the videos)

Last of all, within your Octagon kit you will have received a small bag of LEGO containing random LEGO bricks.

Using only these bricks, we want you to do the following:

- Create and Build a Crazy Creature

- Give it a Crazy Name

- Tell us 3 amazing features of your Crazy Creature

Don't forgot to send pictures and videos of your Crazy Creature (and everything else you build!) to
