Half term is always a bit tricky with the three children. Finding activities to keep them all occupied, without it costing the earth, can be challenging. This February half term we were very lucky with the weather and managed to get out and about a lot and went on lots of lovely walks by the seaside and in the New Forest, but when we were back at home, I had to get a little creative to stop the kids from bickering.
Luckily I had recently been sent a set from Strictly Briks, who offer a range of games and brick packages to suit all ages. Cameron was over the moon when he opened the Strictly Briks tower construction set, which encourages children to get creative in order to build their tower as high as they are able to.
We already have the Brik Buster set, which I included in my Christmas Gift Guide, so I knew the bricks would be durable and stand the test of time, even with excitable children at play.
This particular set is suitable for children aged 5 and above, so Ed took Benjamin off for a play on his trike and Carly settled down colouring whilst Cameron got to work building his tower.
I love that it encourages children’s STEM skills, something which Cameron has really enjoyed recently with an after school club. It was lovely to witness him working out how to put the pieces together to build a tall tower.
The Strictly Briks sets are compatible with other leading brick brands, which is fantastic, as it allowed Cameron to get really creative and add things to his building once he had finished stacking it up. He was really proud when he had finished, and the best bit is, he can rebuild as many times as he wants, and expansion packs will allow him to enhance his creations even more.
The Strictly Briks tower construction pack is available from Amazon, currently priced at £29.99.
We were sent the set and an expansion pack for the purpose of this review, however all words and images are my own.
