Whether you’re a landlubber for life, a seasoned sailor, or something in between, adventures at sea can provide lots of fun role play scenarios for your kids. Here are some ideas to get young kids ready for a journey around the world with an easy-to-build fleet of LEGO DUPLO ships. No seasickness guaranteed, and they can be home in time for dinner!
Think of all the different ways you can travel around the world at sea:
- - You could work as a fisherman on a large fishing boat
- - Go whale watching on an old-school schooner
- - Feel the trade winds on your face as you captain a sailing yacht to beautiful bounty islands
- - Bring happy passengers to their destinations on a cozy ferry
- - Ship all kinds of goods (and goodies) on a giant container ship
- - Look for lighthouses to help you find your way at night
- - Help big boats get safely to and from the harbor in your own little tugboat
- - Or search the seven seas for long lost treasures (and goodies, arr!) in a pirate ship.
What will you see? Who will sail with you? And what will you find on foreign shores?
Our designers used 19 LEGO DUPLO bricks from the 10622 Large Creative Box for these builds. They’re easy to bring in a small bag or box for long or short trips, or anytime you have a few minutes or an hour to play at home.
