Even adults will have fun with these Lego building ideas for kids which are fun and educational at the same time!

Kids of all ages (and their parents) love building with Lego and Duplo bricks. It is a rewarding step-by-step process where the outcome is a very clever and well thought through design of something that interests you from a car, dollhouse, star wars scene, jurassic park dinosaur set, Disney themed castle, or any other one of their seemingly endless sets. But now what. Are you going to display it forever? Will you build it over and over again? Perhaps you will do both those things, then make sure you store the instructions with ALL the pieces in a large ziplock bag. This would actually be my suggestion. But if you wont,  you are probably wishing you could use those lego pieces for a new purpose so the purchase doesn’t go to waste – you will love this fun lego activity that reuses your bricks.

Set aside your boring in your school at home tododay – the dry textbook, elearning that leaves your necked cramped, and try a more engaging, hands-on learning activity that will engage various senses as you learn a variety of subjects at once with this fun kids activities perfect for fall, winter, spring or summer learning.

Lego Challenge Cards

Many kids love to make-up their own inventive creations out of Lego. That is wonderful – such a great way for them to explore their imaginations and creativity. It teaches children the importance of persisting with a task to see their vision realised, take their time / finish a task / persevere,  strengthen cordination and fine motor skills, and follow complex designs. 

However, some children get stuck on what should they create. Still others are looking for new challenges on what to create. And still more are just looking for more excuses to build with their favorite building material. This  Lego Challenge is perfect for all students from preschoolers, kindergartners, grade 1, grade 2, grade 3, grade 4, grade 5, grade 6, grade 7, garde 8, high school, and as a family activity.

Next, cut the cards apart. Each sheet has four cards. I like to cut around the edges of each card so just the border is showing. Or you can just cut down the middle both horizontally and vertically and you will have your LOW PREP lego activity for kids ready to go!

  • Hi! I would love to download your file, but only the first page works. We can see the instructions, but the following pages seem to be corrupt. I tried opening it in Google Docs instead and the words show, but the images do not. Can you check? Thanks!

    • Just checked and it was download several thousand times yesterday. Try a different browser – most people use google chrome. Also try downloading the file first and then looking. The preview is bandwidth and memory intensive =)
