Lego Challenge #16: Bridge

Inspired by Sam's Lego Quest, (which is no longer active),  I wanted to start a 
weekly Lego challenge 
that kids can do and you can link up to. 
This linky has been open for a whole year, and will be closed soon. If you want to link up, please do so this week. 
With the photo, please give your child's age, what country (or, if the the US, what state) you are from and anything your child wants to say about his or her creation.This can be simple or extremely complex, it's up to you. The only real rule is that it has to be custom built. Your own creation, not a pre-designed one.
You can write a separate post for the challenge or you can just add the photo of your child's entry for the challenge to a weekly wrap-up post.

You can also get inspiration with these posts, even though their linkies are now closed.

Lego Challenge #16: Bridge
Can you construct a bridge out of LEGO?
Your bridge may connect two structures, it might provide passage over a river or roadway. It might be scaffolding, a catwalk, a gangplank an arch, even a branch. The idea is, it reaches, spans or extends a distance.
Experiment with how long you can make this extension, while still keeping it stable. Also, try to see if your bridge can hold any weight. You can use coins, cars, LEGO men, whatever you like to place on your bridge to see if they can be held up.

I would also like to bring to your attention to the Lego Bridge Building at...
Lego Fun Friday:  Bridge Building Challenge

With the photo of your child's creation, please give your child's age, what country (or, if the the US, what state) you are from and anything your child wants to say about his or her creation.

  2. Your lego challenges are always great. You asked if I thought up the history series or found it in a unit study. I just thought it up one day. Sometimes, I get lucky and my brain comes up with cool ideas.
