DIY Educational Games with Biggo Blocks for Your Classroom

Hey there, educators and awesome humans! Today, we’re diving into the world of DIY educational games using Biggo Blocks. These aren't just regular building blocks; they're ultimate tools for turning your classroom into a dynamic learning environment. Let's get building, shall we?

Game 1: Alphabet Tower

Objective: Teach letter recognition and spelling.

Materials Needed:

  • Biggo Blocks
  • Stickers or markers


  1. Label the Blocks: Write one letter of the alphabet on each Biggo Block using stickers or markers. Use different colors to categorize vowels and consonants.
  2. Build and Spell: Have students pick a word, find the corresponding blocks, and stack them to spell the word. Make it a race to see who can build their word tower the fastest!

Educational Benefit: This activity enhances letter recognition, spelling, and fine motor skills.

Game 2: Math Challenge

Objective: Practice basic math operations.

Materials Needed:

  • Biggo Blocks
  • Sticky notes or markers


  1. Number the Blocks: Write numbers and basic math symbols (+, -, =) on the Biggo Blocks.
  2. Create Equations: Challenge students to build towers representing different math equations, like “3 + 2 = 5”.
  3. Solve and Build: Kids can work individually or in groups to solve math problems and physically build the equations with the blocks.

Educational Benefit: This game reinforces math skills like addition and subtraction while promoting teamwork and problem-solving.

Game 3: Color Sorting and Patterns

Objective: Develop color recognition and pattern-making skills.

Materials Needed:

  • Biggo Blocks in various colors


  1. Sort by Color: Start with a pile of mixed-color Biggo Blocks. Ask students to sort them into color groups.
  2. Create Patterns: Challenge students to create patterns (e.g., red-blue-red-blue) or more complex sequences.
  3. Advanced Play: For older students, introduce patterns with rules like ABBA or ABCABC.

Educational Benefit: Enhances visual discrimination, cognitive development, and organizational skills.

Game 4: Storytelling Blocks

Objective: Boost creativity and language skills.

Materials Needed:

  • Biggo Blocks
  • Stickers or markers


  1. Create Story Prompts: Write different story elements (characters, settings, problems, solutions) on the blocks.
  2. Build a Story: Have students draw blocks randomly and build a tower that forms the basis of a story. Each block represents a part of the story they must include.
  3. Tell the Tale: Students take turns telling a story using the elements on their block tower.

Educational Benefit: Encourages creativity, storytelling, and language skills.

Game 5: Geometric Shapes

Objective: Teach geometry and spatial awareness.

Materials Needed:

  • Biggo Blocks
  • Geometry templates or pictures of shapes


  1. Show the Shape: Provide templates or pictures of geometric shapes (e.g., triangles, squares, rectangles).
  2. Recreate the Shape: Challenge students to use Biggo Blocks to recreate these shapes as accurately as possible.
  3. Discuss the Properties: After building, discuss the properties of each shape (number of sides, angles, etc.).

Educational Benefit: Reinforces understanding of geometric concepts and spatial reasoning.

Biggo Blocks are more than just fun; they're educational powerhouses that can transform your classroom activities. These DIY games are easy to set up and offer immense educational benefits. So, grab those blocks and get ready to see your students learn and play in ways you never imagined! Happy teaching everyone! Keep building a better future, one block at a time.
