Our kids favorite activity of all time is to build LEGOs, and create magical worlds.
Last week we featured our post on the LEGO videos that our kids discovered and today we are sharing our favorite LEGO activities from around the web. Here at Kids Activities Blog we know that Legos can build ANYTHING!
Do your kids *love* instruction books? Ours do!!! And now you can print off just about any LEGO instruction book – for free! SO many oldies that I remember from my building days.
We love LEGOs and we love playing with the ipad – why not mix them? Here is a list of 10 free Lego apps.
Create art with legos. Our girls love to decorate and create mosaics with their bricks, similar to this rainbow lego activity for kids.
Take pictures of each other’s creations and later try to replicate them. Making your own lego instruction book is a great logic and spatial reasoning activity for kids.
Play a game, draw a slip and build with whatever the instructions ask you to draw out of the communal pile.
This is an idea of a storage drawer system. I bet it would be easy to make… great if your children like to sort their blocks, not great if you have thousands of bricks (as we do).
This is an interesting concept – make a transportable lego bin. Great for travel or for the small collections.
Want a Lego head to collect all the heads (and arms)?? We could use one. Make a “lego head” from a baby food jar to store the small parts.
Use a giant piece of fabric as a mat. Our kids have to keep their legos on the mat, when they are finished playing we draw up the mat and put them away.
If we only had the space, if only! This DIY LEGO table is to die for! It’s awesome – my kids are jealous!
Help your child develop logic skills. Make a maze for your lego man to stroll through.
Use Legos to help your child learn to spell. Write the letters for the spelling word with dry erase markers on your blocks. Have your children build them in order
Try measuring items from around your house with lego blocks, or you can create elaborate patterns.
Have a brick building contest. Give your kids identical sets of bricks and see what they can come up with. Give awards for the biggest item, the most mobile, the prettiest, etc.
Flashcards are a great way for kids to learn, but they can be boring… Not if you add legos to the learning!!
A *bunch* of different ways that you can teach your kids math - with bricks.
Watch legos fly by creating your own lego catapult.
LEGO Party Ideas
Give our DIY Lego Rings as party favors.
Instead of serving cake, why not have a “LEGO” bar, and let the kids create their own lego cookie?
Make a costume from a box… OR use the same tutorial to create a pinata from a smaller box!
Create “lego-like” candy for the kids to build with, play and eat.
