New Year – New Brackitz Builds

This year, why not make a resolution that’s fun to keep? One that benefits not only you, but your family, too? This year, resolve to play more! The benefits of play are endless, for both children and adults, and include stress relief, increased confidence and self-esteem, better focus, cultivation of social skills, development of motor skills, and more. And playing with engineering sets like Brackitz also helps develop critical STEM skills (science, math, and engineering). Plus, playing with your family just feels good.

This year, resolve to sit down with your family and create a brand-new Brackitz build every week. Below are 52 Brackitz challenges appropriate for builders of all ages. Remember, Brackitz promotes open-ended play, so we’re not providing directions or instructions, just ideas. The execution is up to you. Ready? Set? Build!
