Do you have a LEGO fanatic at your home? There are so many LEGO sets out there, but when they are through you might find yourself with a bin full of miscellaneous pieces. If LEGO inspiration runs dry, we got you covered! I have compiled some “challenges” or different activities that can keep your child busy and have a fun time working towards a goal, if challenge is accepted! They are learning with LEGOS and using critical thinking to complete these tasks. These activities work great using LEGO base plates that you can find at Toys "R" Us or on Amazon.
Pick your favorite LEGO person and create a home for them. When finished with home, make a car, boat or tank to go with the home.
Create a LEGO maze, use a marble to see if it will make it through the course.
Build something with only 20 LEGO pieces.
LEGO Art- create a pattern or design using a color scheme.
Create your name in 3D, or flat on a table.
Build your dream house.
Cityscape with addition- Have your first building one LEGO tall, the next building two LEGOS tall, and the next three LEGOS tall and so forth. See how many LEGO buildings you can create.
Are these not enough for your LEGO master? Check out Pinterest and you will get a ton more ideas!
