Our house is a 100% bonafide LEGO® friendly establishment. In fact, you are liable to find colorful LEGO® creations scattered all over the house despite my best efforts to keep them somewhat corralled. Oh well, I must admit that I am really fond of these plastic building blocks in their many shapes and forms (except the pointy pieces that get stuck in my feet in the middle of the night). They bring out kids’ creativity in so many different ways.
Here are 16 Frugal LEGO Activities to keep the kids entertained and their minds sharp.
1. LEGO Catapult from Kids Activities Blog-Because sending objects sailing through the air is just so much fun.
2. LEGO Doodle Cars from Adventures in a Box-Combining art and motion in one super fun activity for the younger ones.
3. LEGO Football from Fireflies and Mud Pies-Have a free tabletop or some clear floor space. Playing LEGO football indoors (the kind that won’t reek havoc on the furniture or mom’s good lamp) is the perfect activity for a rainy day.
4. LEGO Marble Maze at Octavia and Vicky-Navigate marbles through a variety of maze designs. The possible maze runs are as endless as the imagination and physics allow.
5. LEGO Science: An Ice Excavation Experiment from Lemon Lime Adventures-Great entertainment for the heat of summer. Rescue minfigures from their freezing predicaments trapped inside blocks of ice.
6. LEGO Slime from Lemon Lime Adventures-Music to your kid’s ears. Slime with LEGO pieces mixed in is sure to delight the goo lover.
7. LEGO Spoon Race from Little Family Fun-The good old-fashioned egg race minus the eggs and plus the LEGO pieces.
8. LEGO Water Gun Gallery (Photo Above)-Let the kiddos build some towers or other creations of their choice and then let them head outside, set up their towers, and use the spray from their water guns to knock them over.
9. LEGO Zipline from Learning Through Playing-Look out below. Here comes the LEGO minifigs whizzing past on their very own zipline.
10. Pin the Head on the LEGO Man from East Coast Mommy-No more pin the tail on the donkey; now it’s pin the head on the LEGO man.
11. Rocket Powered LEGO Car from Frugal Fun for Boys-Jet propulsion and vehicles are a win, win, win, in many kids’ books. Disguise a good science lesson as pure fun.
12. Star Wars LEGO Science: Save Han Solo from Fun-A-Day!-Baking soda, jello powder, ice cube trays, and minifigures. Need I say more?
13. Building LEGO Names from Playdough to Plato-Seeing your name in LEGOs is almost as good as seeing your name in the lights of Broadway.
14. LEGO Candy Dispenser from Frugal Fun for Boys-A gumball machine made out of LEGOS; that is what I am talking about.
15. LEGO Challenges from LEGO Quest-52 building challenges that will real stretch the imagination and get the blocks clicking.
16. LEGO Snowglobes from Minieco.UK-Simply because a snowglobe is fascinating any time of the year.

We love Legos so much that we’re going to Legoland this summer just to sleep in Lego bunk beds! Thanks for the ideas!
That sounds like such fun. We went to Legoland Florida a few years back and really enjoyed it. Sending Pinterest love back your way.

This is great! Thank you for sharing!
Thanks so much for hopping over. You have a lovely website. Sending G+ and Pinterest love your way.
These are fantastic! I can’t want to try the minifigure zipline with my kids. They’ve seen mommy zipline but they are still too young to do it so this will be a lot of fun for them!
I love anything zipline so thought this LEGO zipline was exciting. Sending some Pinterest love back your way.

Pinned it to my kids activities board too!
Great list! Pinning for when my boys are old enough for Lego. Thanks for sharing with the Frugal Family!
You will have a blast watching them have a blast with LEGOs.
We’re a Lego family. I am up to my ears in Legos. Thanks for sharing this great list of Lego ideas at TGI Saturdays. Hope to see you this weekend. Blessings.
Then you know all about stepping on stray LEGO pieces in the middle of the night.
This is such a great list–especially now that the kids are home from school. Usually, all I need is to prompt them in an activity and that usually gets their creative juices flowing. The problem is that *I’m* not creative LOL These are great starting points..thank you 🙂 🙂
LEGOs definitely lend themselves to hours of creativity. Sending some Pinterest love your way.
LEGOs definitely lend themselves to hours of creative play. Amazing what creations the kiddos can come up with using all those bricks and accessories.
