My family LOVES visiting LEGOLAND California! I think it’s one of the chillest theme parks and they do a great job of making sure there are fun things to do with toddlers, as well as older kids.

I appreciate that parents don’t have to go on all the rides with the kids. That gives my boys a sense of independence and they can do the same rides over and over again.

We’re also huge fans of their on-site hotels. One of my kids’ favorite things to do when staying at the LEGOLAND Hotel is doing the treasure chest. Basically, you run around the resort to solve clues and then the kids get a code that opens up a treasure chest in the room that has cool LEGO prizes inside.

We were planning on heading back to LEGOLAND California this summer to check out their new area inspired by the LEGO movies. But plans change.

In order to bring a little bit of LEGOLAND home, I thought I’d share some of the coolest LEGO crafts and kid activities. Continue reading for the entire list and choose your favorites!

Super Fun LEGO Crafts

1. DIY LEGO Bathtub Crayons

42 LEGO Crafts and Activities for Kids for Endless Fun featured by top US lifestyle blogger, Marcie in Mommyland: homemade soap crayons

My kids spend a LOT of time hanging out in the bathtub. It’s not that they are especially dirty or anything, but they just love all the water play.

These LEGO soap crayons are easy to make and provide extra awesome bathtime fun!

2. Printmaking with LEGOs

42 LEGO Crafts and Activities for Kids for Endless Fun featured by top US lifestyle blogger, Marcie in Mommyland: This simple Lego craft takes advantage of the huge variety of shapes & sizes Legos come in to make Lego prints in the shape of robots.

Since LEGOs already come in different shapes and sizes, they lend themselves perfectly to printmaking. This is one fo the best LEGO crafts because it hardly takes any prep time. And you can change it up by having kids color their art with washable markers.

3. DIY LEGO Head Marker Holder

42 LEGO Crafts and Activities for Kids for Endless Fun featured by top US lifestyle blogger, Marcie in Mommyland: Making this DIY LEGO Head Marker Holder is a great way to celebrate the release of The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part. Get the tutorial on www.drugstoredivas.net.

I love LEGO crafts that look cute but also serve a purpose. You can use it to store all kinds of markets, pens, pencils, etc or you can put those itty bitty LEGO pieces in there.

4. DIY Repurposed Can LEGO Head

42 LEGO Crafts and Activities for Kids for Endless Fun featured by top US lifestyle blogger, Marcie in Mommyland: DIY Repurposed Can Lego Head - Organized 31

This LEGO craft is similar to the one above, but it’s even easier. Just use one of those Argo cornstarch containers (it’s already yellow) and then draw on any type of LEGO face!

Grab a few LEGO mini-figures that crack you up and use those as inspiration. Or have kids create self-portraits or go wild creating funny LEGO faces!

And once you are done, you can use it to store LEGOs or any other small toy that might otherwise get stepped on.

5. Easy LEGO Snow Globes for Kids

42 LEGO Crafts and Activities for Kids for Endless Fun featured by top US lifestyle blogger, Marcie in Mommyland: These DIY snow globes for kids are so fun! Use your LEGOs and don't worry about spilling water . . . there isn't any in this craft!

When I was little, I remember making snow globes and it was the only craft that I really enjoyed. However, it wasn’t my mom’s favorite because the globes always seemed to leak and cause a big mess.

That’s why I’m stoked about these snow globes. These LEGO crafts are water-free! To change it up a little bit, I think we’re going to use sand and turn it into a beach scene instead!

5. Printable LEGO Luggage Gift Tags

42 LEGO Crafts and Activities for Kids for Endless Fun featured by top US lifestyle blogger, Marcie in Mommyland: Printable LEGO Luggage Gift Tags

So, this LEGO craft is meant to be used on those LEGO travel suitcase sets, but I think it’s more versatile than that. You can have your kids help you make a bunch of these and then you can use them for holiday or birthday gifts for friends or family.

You can also hang them on LEGO bins or drawers so kids know what is inside.

7. LEGO Minifigure Fairy LEGO Hack

These LEGO crafts are super simple, which make them a winner! Kids can turn any LEGO mini-figure into a fairy by adding a little butterfly punch-out to make wings. So easy!

LEGO Activities for Kids

8. Magnetic LEGO Travel Tray + Challenge Cards

42 LEGO Crafts and Activities for Kids for Endless Fun featured by top US lifestyle blogger, Marcie in Mommyland: LEGO Travel Tray and Challenge Cards

Technically, this is kind of a craft because you have to assemble it ahead of time. But, it’s really an activity that you can hopefully use over and over again whether you are traveling or not.

You can use any sort of container and attach magnets or use magnetic containers. And I love that you can reuse cookie sheets.

9. Simple and Fun Lego Coding Activities

42 LEGO Crafts and Activities for Kids for Endless Fun featured by top US lifestyle blogger, Marcie in Mommyland: Practice pattern recognition with Legos. Start basic coding concepts with toddlers, preschoolers, and kids. #coding #Lego #pattern #activity #STEM #learning #activity Team-Cartwright.com

Yes, little kids can learn how to code! You can start out by using LEGO bricks, as they are accessible and perfect for teaching simple coding for kids.

10. How to Teach Fractions with LEGO Bricks

42 LEGO Crafts and Activities for Kids for Endless Fun featured by top US lifestyle blogger, Marcie in Mommyland

This is definitely a hands-on activity where parents are using LEGO bricks to teach fractions. The concept is simple: Make LEGO towers with different color bricks to show fractions (like a tower of 7 bricks: 3 are red and 4 are blue).

Then, you can have kids build their own LEGO towers and tell you which fractions they are making. I like this better than the pie visual (mostly because it doesn’t leave me hungry for pie!)

11. Star Wars Lego Mosaics That Teach Kids Problem Solving

42 LEGO Crafts and Activities for Kids for Endless Fun featured by top US lifestyle blogger, Marcie in Mommyland: Fun lego activities for kids | Star Wars

These Star Wars LEGO mosaics help kids focus on creativity, fine motor skills, and problem solving. All you need is to download the LEGO printable and use your own LEGO bricks.

You can build them on a table, however I think it’s much easier for kids to use LEGO baseplates.

12. Preschool Busy Bag: Counting with LEGO and Play-Doh

42 LEGO Crafts and Activities for Kids for Endless Fun featured by top US lifestyle blogger, Marcie in Mommyland

This is an awesome preschool LEGO activity because it’s all things you probably have around your house: LEGOs, Play-Doh, and numbers. If you don’t have foam numbers (like the ones pictured above), you can use puzzle pieces, stamps, or cut out numbers using card stock or cardboard.

I love how hands-on this activity is and it’s a great way for younger kids to start understanding numbers and shapes.

13. Awesome LEGO Reading Aids Kids Can Make

E42 LEGO Crafts and Activities for Kids for Endless Fun featured by top US lifestyle blogger, Marcie in Mommyland: asy LEGO Reading Aids for Kids - Great for encouraging reluctant readers!

When kids start to read chapter books, it can be easy for them to try to go quickly and kind of get lost in the block of text.

This site offers a few fun reading aids that kids can make themselves to help them keep track of where they are on the page. Out of all of them, I like the one pictured above best because it’s easy to build and it’s easy to use.

14. DIY LEGO Zipline

42 LEGO Crafts and Activities for Kids for Endless Fun featured by top US lifestyle blogger, Marcie in Mommyland: Zipline lego pieces

So this DIY LEGO zipline activity is meant to be an Elf on the Shelf thing. However, I think it would be really cool for kids to make and test out with dolls, stuffed animals, or even LEGO minifigures!

15. LEGO Charades Game

42 LEGO Crafts and Activities for Kids for Endless Fun featured by top US lifestyle blogger, Marcie in Mommyland: LEGO Charades is the perfect family and kid activity for all ages!! Use the free printable cards, build the words on the cards with the LEGO bricks and have everyone guess what is being built! So much fun!

I think this LEGO charades game is super cool because you can play as a family, the kids can play with each other, or kids can do it as a solo thing. It’s great for kids to read the words and figure out how to construct it using LEGO bricks.

16. Travel-Friendly LEGO Build Game

42 LEGO Crafts and Activities for Kids for Endless Fun featured by top US lifestyle blogger, Marcie in Mommyland: LEGO Build Game is perfect for family travel vacations

If you are looking for a great road trip game or airplane busy bag activity for kids, try this cool LEGO Travel Build Game. Basically, kids spin the wheel and then they have to build whatever thing the arrow points to.

This is a great game that kids can play by themselves or you can play as a family.

17. LEGO Math Ten Frame Games

42 LEGO Crafts and Activities for Kids for Endless Fun featured by top US lifestyle blogger, Marcie in Mommyland: LEGO Ten Frames Games

If your kids are studying Ten Frames in their kindergarten or 1st grade class, these games are a great way to supplement at home. Just build a ten frame and you’re good to go to play these 4 fun LEGO math games!

18. LEGO Memory Game for Kids

42 LEGO Crafts and Activities for Kids for Endless Fun featured by top US lifestyle blogger, Marcie in Mommyland: LEGO Memory Game for Kids (with adaptations for older and younger children)

While you can technically use any item for this memory game, it’s more fun with LEGOs, DUPLOs, or LEGO minifigures. It’s and easy way to extend their play and work on critical thinking and memory skills.

19. DIY LEGO Clock

42 LEGO Crafts and Activities for Kids for Endless Fun featured by top US lifestyle blogger, Marcie in Mommyland: Make your own custom clock out of LEGO bricks!

How cute is this LEGO clock? No, it’s not an actual working clock (although I’m sure you could find a tutorial for that.)

This is more of an activity to do with your child to help teach them how to tell time on a regular clock. Plus, each number is represented in LEGO bricks so they can get a better sense of the value of numbers, too.

20. LEGO Ring Toss Game

42 LEGO Crafts and Activities for Kids for Endless Fun featured by top US lifestyle blogger, Marcie in Mommyland: Lego Ring Toss game

This is a fun game that kids can build and play completely on their own. You can use DUPLO bricks for younger kiddos or use regular LEGO bricks for older kids.

Make it a competition and have kids build their own ring toss game and then play against each other.

21. Minecraft LEGO Grid Game

 

https://www.stirthewonder.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/Minecraft-LEGO-4.jpg

Both my boys are sucked into the Minecraft world and we have a bunch of LEGO Minecraft sets now. Sometimes all it takes is for me to mention Minecraft to get them on board with just about any idea I come up with.

For preschoolers, you can roll a modified die and see who can fill up their board quickest.

For older kids, you can use the game board to play tic tac toe, but swap the X and O for Minecraft minifigures or bricks.

22. LEGO Insect Anatomy

42 LEGO Crafts and Activities for Kids for Endless Fun featured by top US lifestyle blogger, Marcie in Mommyland: LEGO Insect Anatomy with labels

For a really easy science lesson, take advantage of this LEGO insect anatomy activity. I suggest reading a book or watching a video about insects first. Then, print out these labels and have kids create their own insect and label the body parts.

23. How to Build Balloon-Powered LEGO Cars

42 LEGO Crafts and Activities for Kids for Endless Fun featured by top US lifestyle blogger, Marcie in Mommyland: Balloon-Powered-LEGO-Cars

Both my kids are super into vehicles and they are always designing cars, trucks, and other elaborate vehicles out of their LEGO stash.

This adds the extra element of a balloon! Just blow it up and see which car goes the furthest. You can have kids make a variety of vehicles to test out or have them re-design after each race to try to improve.

24. LEGO Science Scavenger Hunt

This is a super cool LEGO science experiment for kids of all ages. Older kids can help mix together the supplies and create these scavenger hunt iced figures.

Younger kids can experiment with water droppers and tools to try to find all the items hidden inside.

42 LEGO Crafts and Activities for Kids for Endless Fun featured by top US lifestyle blogger, Marcie in Mommyland: https://onemamasdailydrama.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/lego-story-kids-activity.jpg

Sometimes it can be hard to get kids to write stories on their own. There are so many possibilities that it can feel overwhelming.

What I like to do is have my kids spend a few minutes building a LEGO creature or building and then using that as their inspiration. It can inspire hours of play, writing and creative thinking.

28. Finding Perimeter and Area with this LEGO Learning Activity
