These are the best kids’ LEGO activities ever! LEGO® is one of the most awesome and versatile play materials out there. Ever since my son connected his first LEGO® bricks, he has been in love. Usually, we enjoy tons of cool science experiments together, so we have mixed science and STEM with LEGO®. Find out all the coolest things to build with LEGO below.
SUPER COOL KIDS LEGO® ACTIVITIES
LEGO FOR KIDS
As you may know, we LOVE everything STEM, science, and art. So we have combined that with LEGO® for AMAZING learning and playing experiences! You can use LEGO anywhere, including home, classroom, office, or group setting, making it the perfect portable activity for kids.
Whether you start off with Duplo bricks for toddlers or preschoolers and work your way up to basic bricks for Kindergarten and beyond, LEGO building is for everyone!
LEGO® lets your imagination run wild, and paired with science, STEM, or slime; kids have a unique opportunity to explore LEGO like you have never explored it before. Our favorite: challenge your kids to build a LEGO volcano and then help them make it erupt! See below for a link to this cool LEGO STEM project!
THE MANY BENEFITS OF BUILDING LEGOS
The benefits of LEGO are numerous. From the hours of free play to more complicated STEM projects, LEGO building has been encouraging learning through exploration for decades. Our LEGO activities cover so many areas of early learning that can go right through to the early teen years.
- Strengthening Hands and Fingers With LEGO

Building with LEGO teaches us how to problem solve and use intricate details to make a design come alive.
On top of all of this, LEGO® builds families and friends. It’s a dad passing his old space LEGO® set on to his son or two friends helping to put together the latest Star Wars set. LEGO® is our past, present, and future.
COOL THINGS TO BUILD WITH LEGO BRICKS
We started with the regular size LEGO® bricks at the age of 4 and haven’t looked back. Year after year, my son’s building skills have increased tremendously. His use of different types of pieces and his knowledge of how different pieces function is also blossoming.
This year I put together a collection of our most popular LEGO activities for kids. The best part is that most of these fun LEGO ideas can be done with basic bricks. This means it is accessible to everyone! Plus there are a ton of LEGO printables throughout… or just grab the HUGE Brick Bundle.
