Legoland launches building challenge site for children stuck at home

CARLSBAD — Legoland California Resort announced today that it has launched an online site for children and families cooped up as a result of state and local stay-at-home orders.

The Legoland Building Challenge, found at Legoland.com/llcbuildingchallenge, is filled with instructional videos and activities that promote learning, creating and play.

Every Wednesday, the park will announce a new theme and release a new instructional “how to build” video hosted by a master model builder. On Fridays, Legoland will highlight builds posted by followers on the resort’s social media sites and ask families for ideas on what the builders should construct next.

The first instructional video on the site features builder PJ Catalano building a birthday cupcake in honor of the park’s 21st birthday.

“So many children are missing out on birthday parties and celebrating their birthday at the park, so we thought a birthday theme seemed fitting as our inaugural build,” said Legoland California Resort General Manager Kurt Stocks.

In addition to the builds, the site will feature other activities including coloring pages, trivia, word games and more.

All activities on the building challenge site are free.
