During school holidays keeping the children entertained can feel like a mission sometimes. Lego is an easy and fun solution! Not only does it occupy them for hours on end, but it is also a good way for them to let their imaginations run wild, develop problem-solving skills and enhance their spatial abilities. Here is a collection of some Lego activities that will suit a variety of ages. Your kids will love to build these and you can join in too!
Fun Lego Activities
WORD FAMILY BUILDINGS – These Word Family Lego Buildings are a great way to encourage your child to hear/see patterns in reading. This is an important skill because it allows children to begin “reading” by grouping sets of letters within a word. Idea found via I Can Teach My Child.
LEGO RAINBOW – If you’re looking for a quick and easy activity, try making a rainbow out of Lego. It can also teach your little ones about colours. Idea found via kids activities blog.
LEGO BATH – Kids can be stubborn when it comes to bathtime, but adding lego into it is a good way to change their minds. A lego bath is a good way to get them clean and let their imagination run wild. Idea found via Busy Toddler.
LEGO PICTURES – Now this activity looks deceptively simple – it is actually a lot harder then it looks! Completing a design involves sorting, matching, counting, adding, subtracting, even dividing and multiplying. Find the printable designs at Childhood 101.
