They range from building a new house for the family, creating something from Star Wars, building a hotel, a safe, a rollercoaster and a tree-house among other challenges.
Mum Vanessa Stubbs told Kidspot the daily challenges were keeping her daughter occupied for hours on end.
Writing on the website, she hailed the activity sheet, saying: “It's the 30 Day LEGO Challenge that my daughter enthusiastically undertakes for several hours a day in her bedroom.
“Let me repeat that SEVERAL. HOURS. A. DAY.
“Yesterday she was squirreled away for two. The day before it was an hour.
“Yes, I'm timing because these are the golden hours in my day where I am not asked for A) Snacks, B) Help with maths I do not understand, and C) My phone to FaceTime her friends.”
Vanessa spotted the challenge on Facebook, when a fellow mum, Zoe, shared the task sheet online.
Within days hundreds of mum had joined the group and were sharing their kid’s creations.
Zoe said she's received countless messages from fellow parents, with “lots of people” contacting her to say thanks for uploading the Lego challenge.
