There's so much in store for a child who's four! Soaring cognitive, language, and motor skill developments have your child learning and growing in new ways every day – and they're just getting started. LEGO® Juniors play products are designed to promote independence, education, and imagination through a fun and interactive play experience, and we've teamed up with them to give you some tips about building up your child's confidence through play. There are a whole bunch of sets to spark your child's creativity, from Emma's Ice Cream Truck to the Police Helicopter Chase.

Five ways to encourage confidence in your pre-schooler

1. Nurture self-sufficiency through creative play

LEGO® Juniors play products are designed to promote independence, education, and imagination through a fun and interactive play experience. When your preschooler assembles things with their own two hands, creativity and confidence really stack up!

2. Practice makes perfect

Establishing easy, daily to-dos for your child can help them turn everyday efforts into independent actions you can both be proud of! Whether you're looking to reinforce healthy habits such as hand-washing before meals or proper tooth or hair-brushing before bed, predictable routines offer the consistency and comfort required for independent success.

3. Try new things together

Trying new things can feel scary sometimes, but when parents show they're willing to have a go, children can gain the confidence to try new things for themselves. Consider starting small with a food you've never eaten before or a sport you've never played. Give it your best shot, have a great time, and encourage your child to try it along with you.

4. Give them a choice

From dining and dressing to work and play, children enjoy choice. Better still, you'll enjoy witnessing your children put independence into action when they decide which vegetables to have at dinner or what to wear on a school day.

5. Give them a voice

Your four-year-old is full of great thoughts and ideas! When family matters such as holiday plans are up for discussion, encourage your child to have their say. By providing a warm and inviting space for your child to be heard, you're encouraging a confident, independent voice to last a lifetime.


With LEGO® Juniors, your child can finally show everyone what they're capable of and let their imagination run wild. They can be proud and happy, and create a world where they're in charge.

Competition closes on the May 11th.
