Spread L-o-v-e #8 - Build, spell and learn with LEGO Duplo

Posted by ~Summer~ on 9.4.14

Yes, we're back from a weekend getaway to LEGOLAND Malaysia and I can't wait to share more pictures and updates with you!

But before that, as you might know, I just turned 31 and with all the goodness that has happened in my life recently, it is only high time that I pay it forward. So, guess what? My Spread L-o-ve project is finally back!



Since we have been surrounded by the colourful bricks recently and considering that my Creativity 521 post on spelling with building bricks and the glow-in-the-dark idea was quite well received, I thought it might be nice to give away a set of LEGO Duplo with written alphabets so that more parents and kids can have fun playing, bonding, spelling and learning at the same time.


Ta-dah! Wait, this is a brand new LEGO Duplo set, yeah? I bought it from Thomson Plaza after searching around for a set that had more of the 2 x 2 bricks because these were the ones I would be using to stick the labels and write on.

Here is a breakdown of the pieces contained in the set.

I had to remove the plastic bags just so I could gather the square bricks and label them with the luminous and normal sticker labels. Subsequently, I wrote lower case letters onto each of the labels, including more of vowels and commonly used consonants. The rest of the Lego bricks will also be given to the winner and rest assured that I will wrap and pack all of the bricks neatly back into the box.

There will be a total of 27 bricks for you and your child to engage in spelling games! 15 of these have glow-in-the-dark labels while the remaining 12 have normal sticker labels. All four sides of every brick are labelled so that makes 27 x 4 = 108 letters.  I sure hope you will be able to spell the words that you wish to teach your child! Note: The glow-in-the-dark labels are a little yellowish in colour and slightly bigger, have fun with these during bedtime! Click here to see how they look like in the dark.

This learning set is targeted at kids between 2 and 6 years of age, so kindly do participate only if you have a child/niece/nephew in this age range. This is by no means a sponsored post and since the parcel is bulky, I am opening this giveaway to readers residing in Singapore only.

To join in the giveaway, simply leave a comment in this blog post and tell me something you like about A Happy Mum. Remember to click on the Rafflecopter widget to indicate that you have commented and you can follow the rest of the options to increase your chances of winning.

Let's spread some L-o-v-e!

Disclaimer: The letters are written using a black permanent marker and the labels can be peeled away. Kindly supervise and exercise caution when the kids are playing. Remember to laugh and have fun!

  5. I get ideas on where to bring my kids, what activities I can do with them through "A Happy Mum". Being a mum to 3 active kids, I am constantly thinking of how to engage them on activities so that they do not get bored and do anything mischievous. This Lego phonics can help me teach my 3 years old girl phonics through play. :))

  31. A Happy Mum blog always give me enlightenment how to use our creativity to brighten up or attract kids interest in learning. Using the bricks to turn into learning fun on alphabets is a brilliant idea. I really have a hard time to teach my 4 years old boy in learning alphabets, he does not have any interest at all. After seeing this, I will try this out as he love bricks so much. Hope I'm the lucky one to have this. Thanks for your ideas.

Reading your blog give me ideas with home learning, craft works (who says craft work is only for girls), travel ideas and most importantly how to be happy by looking at things from other angles...And being happy, especially with your loved ones.. This is what I love!!
