Most kids love hands-on activities; something that they built with their own two hands. There’s a special sort of pride they have for things they build, so we’ve got 4 builds they can be proud of this summer and play with when they’re done!
Summer time is all about fun in sun, but what happens when the pool starts to get a little boring or those summer storms roll through? Keeping kids engaged year-round is one of our goals at HEXBUG, so we’ve put together a list of some of the best building activities for kids and teens to do this summer. Unlike model toys, these builds won’t just sit on a shelf collecting dust. Kids build them and then use them!
This new VEX Robotics robot is the perfect challenge to add to your teen’s collection. Not only is it fun to play with, but it’s 150+ pieces make this build just challenging enough to stay interesting. The catapult launches over 20 feet, so they’re bound to be impressed. BONUS: This set also has an alternative build, the Arcstriker, for added versatility and fun!
If you’ve got a BattleBots fan in your household, this is definitely the build for them. Warhead joins the HEXBUG artillery as the newest VEX Robotics BattleBots build! Easy to build and fun to play with, this toy is perfect for kids age 8 and older.
What kid hasn’t pretended to be a knight at some point? This bad boy brings the imaginary game to life! 310+ pieces make this build a bit more difficult than others, but trust me, it’s totally worth it for that 20 ft. launch!
In the house, in the yard, this truck drives on all terrain! With over 820 pieces, this build will keep your kiddo busy (perfect for a rainy summer day!). Once it’s built, this truck connects to the VEX Pilot App (free in the app store) and is controlled right from a smartphone or tablet. The shock absorbers and all-terrain tires make this truck perfect for tricks anywhere!
