Lego Team Building. Nothing Builds a Team Like Lego

Lego events are a great way to relieve stress and engage participants with this very creative event.

Lego Team Building Indoor Events building a heart with bricks

Lego team building! Lego team building activities lead to more enthusiastic participation giving you more to take away from your event in our Thailand | Singapore Lego activities. It’s not a big secret that a lot of team building exercises can be generic, mundane or even a little uncomfortable for some employees.

Bring out the Lego sets however, and you may notice a sudden positive attitude! Most people, whether as a child or parent, have experience using Lego as a toy, and usually associate it with something that’s fun.

Below are some examples of Lego exercises you can use:

The Lego team Building Tower Challenge

We’ll start with a classic. This Lego challenge has your group split into even teams, ideally with 3-5 members. The rule is that the team that builds the largest standing tower in a limited frame of time will be the winner. The tower must be sturdy enough that it stands on its own for 60 seconds, so plan it carefully!

This challenge may see those with natural leadership qualities take the lead and can be an interesting way to analyse your employee’s strengths and weaknesses. It can be made more interesting by not allowing the teams to speak during the construction, or by telling them to build it on uneven or shaky surfaces.

The more obstacles in place, the more they will have to work together as a team to overcome!

Building Bridges with Lego

If it’s not too on the nose, you may choose to include the Lego bridge building exercise to really enforce the idea of coming together. It’s a simple one; divide your group into two teams and give each team bricks to build half of a bridge.

Place a sheet between them so one team can’t see what the other one is constructing. They must rely solely on verbal communication with each other to explain how it looks and how they can fit it together.

When both have their parts completed, remove the sheet and allow them to try and find a way to link their parts together, no matter how vastly different or haphazard they are.

A time limit on this exercise can add to the fun and to their ability to work under pressure!

Using Lego to Relate to Workplace Situations

Every place of work has its problems. Maybe Susan keeps stealing a sandwich out of the fridge, or Dave won’t stop sending inappropriate chain emails from 2004.

Instead of just talking through these problems or issues, it can take the edge and discomfort off the situation slightly if you use Lego to recreate scenarios that employees have to deal with in work.

Try using groups of two to four people to recreate some situations using Lego pieces, all within a 10-15 minute period. People are more likely to relate and participate with something they can physically see, so making “snapshots” of people or situations with the Lego may prove more productive than spelling out words on a whiteboard!

Lego Serious Play Kits

If you needed any more evidence that Lego can be an essential part of team building, then look no further; Lego’s own “Serious Play” kits are designed specifically to be used in professional and team building environments.

You can use any kind of Lego for your team building sessions, but these are geared solely towards that kind of use.

This is especially helpful with the likes of recreating workplace situations or role-playing, as the kits come equipped with objects such as wheels, mini figures, windows, trees and office devices.
