Putting the challenge into littlebits

How to move from consumption to creation? Use challenges:

See page 20 for torch / flashlight challenges. Challenging students to make a torch with littlebits works really well: need toilet rolls, clear paper cups, tape, rubber, bands, scissors, felt pens, as well as littlebits. Then get them to make waving hand as on sheet below. Found they then also were more creative and came up with ideas like using propeller with bell attached to play jingle bells. Page 20 of Educators Guide below is good.
