Over the past few years, our home has been overtaken by a collection of small colored shape items known as….Legos.
If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em, right? At least in the area of Legos. You don’t have to look very far to find ideas for incorporating Legos into your family life. They can be used to teach and learn, to entertain and to help cure boredom.
We’ve been enjoying a Matthew Lego Challenge this summer (pictured above, my son’s “family tree” taken from the first lesson, of trees growing just like families do), and it’s been a great way to stimulate my children’s creative thinking skills as they build different “scenes” from the book of Matthew in the Bible. It’s motivated me to keep up with these Lego challenges all year long! There are so many you can do with your kids and lots of other ways you can use Legos in your home. Here are 20+ Lego activities for kids that mom and dad can have fun doing too!
Lego Activities for Kids and Families
Matthew Bible Lego Challenge – available for purchase or the basic challenge list is free
BONUS: Try building your own Lego Table with your children!
There are almost 50 FREE Lego apps that my kids have enjoyed as well, perfect for our long trips to see Grandma and Grandpa. Lego Creator Island is one of our favorites. Just go to the Lego website and search “apps”, as there are options for both Apple and Android devices.
And for MORE ideas and inspiration, the Lego Ideas Book is a must-have!
Disclaimer: We’ve only seen two of these Lego videos (Lego Super Heroes Maximum Overload and The Adventures of Clutch Powers), and one sadly is not even on Netflix streaming anymore (Clutch Powers), although I believe it may be available on Netflix DVD. Please use discretion and view shows before your children watch them if there is a concern!
