LEGO activities typically involve building amazing creations with some colorful little bricks. Â But think outside the box with these LEGO learning activities for the young child.

Kids Activities Blog hopes your young child feels like a big kid as they play with LEGOs with these great kids activities.

## LEGO Activities

My big guy is 10 and an avid LEGO player. Â He builds, takes apart, and rebuilds til his heart’s content. Â He is happy as a clam until his little brother interferes. Â Yes, the 3 year old shouldn’t be messing with his LEGO Star Wars contraptions, I get it – but he really wants to play with LEGO activities. SO this momma had to come up with some simple LEGO games to keep him happy and entertained. Â And why not make them educational while I was at it? These may be simple and basic activities, but my 3 year old loves them and asks to play “LEGOs” with momma all the time now!

## Young Child

Here are a few of our Favorite LEGO activities for beginning learners:

## Color Activities {with LEGOs}

• Sort the LEGO bricks by color. Â Give them a pile of bricks and start them off with a brick of each color in their own pile. Â Have them call out the colors as they sort them. Â Ask them to pick up certain colored bricks.
• Creations by color. Â Ask your child to put together a stack of LEGO brick color by color, “Put a blue LEGO on top of a red LEGO, then a green one, then a yellow one.”

## Shape Activities {with LEGOs}

• Teach Shapes with LEGO bricks. Â Teach your child the difference between a square and a rectangle using bricks. Â Ask them to identify and sort the LEGO bricks based on shapes. We have several circles and triangles in our LEGO collection. Â If not, you can certainly create them.
• Trace several shapes on a piece of paper and ask your child to sort the LEGOs based on the shapes on the paper.

## Counting Activities {with LEGOs}

• Put several LEGO creations together (simple to start) and have your child count them as they take them apart. Â Or do this in reverse and ask them to count the LEGO bricks as they create an object.
• Count up to ten using LEGO bricks to create towers. Â Start with one brick, then 2 next to it, 3 and so on up to 10. Â The visual is how tall the tower is at 10 bricks compared to one.
• Create piles of bricks of different numbers (4 in one pile, 7 in the next, 2 in the next, etc.) and ask your child to count the number of bricks in each pile.
• Basic addition and subtraction can be introduced here. Â “If you had 5 bricks and we took away 2 bricks, how many bricks would we have left?”
