• LEGO Play Day 2018!

    Jordan Paxton

    Let's Play

    Around the world the LEGO offices were closed Friday while employees took the day to remember what it is like to be a kid through play! Celebrations included concerts, food, arts & crafts, game shows, wellness activities, magicians, petting zoos and lots of LEGO bricks! One of the best parts is that every market/country celebrates differently! Whether it was a local office with 10 employees or Billund with around 4,000 employees the atmosphere was exciting and the options were plenty.

    Each activity was focused on one of 5 different key play values including cognitive, physical, creative, social and emotional skills. To help us visualize these key values we even all received a special lanyard and printed bricks!


    Social and Emotional play is important as well. Even if you are just coloring, relaxing on a giant bean bag or petting a pot bellied pig!




    Many employees were impressed to see the LEGO elements used in ways they had never imagined before.

    It is unlikely we even realized that we were learning through play!

    Play Day is all about dropping the rule book and playing for a day to help stay relaxed, centered and focused. To view more images of Play Day, you can look up #LEGOPLAYDAY on social sites.

    Jordan, can you post a detailed description on the Spirograph?  Or maybe a couple photos so others can replicate?  The picture in the blog post is blurry (it was in motion).   It looks like a fun activity to do.
