Every month sees plenty of fun LEGO activities hosted by AFOLs on social media. We posted about weekly hashtag fun before, which you can read here. Building Challenges can be a lot of fun. Not just the creative aspect with building, but also the social interactions with other builders from around the world.
Friday the 13th seemed the perfect day for me to host my first Instagram challenge. Annoyed that LEGO often snubs black cats in sets I wanted to do something with black cats. Having worked in a shelter I know black cats struggle to get adopted while they often have very sweet characters. So to celebrate black cats I hope others will join in and show their love as well. Since LEGO hasn’t produced many black cats you can always build your own if you don’t have one on hand.
October is time for spooky building so of course this sees the return of Halloween Habitats hosted by Jen @brickfambuilds and Anabelle @brickswhynot on Instagram. Individual habitats can be posted with #HalloweenHabitats23 from October 23-28 and full stacks on the 29th. And with al the witchcraft happening at Instagram lately, be sure to add @halloweenhabitats as a contributor to your Halloween builds so everybody can keep track of all the habitats!
To get some inspiration from previous years, be sure to have a look here as well.
