Learn and Play

Build, Create, and Inspire!

Building with LEGO is more fun when you build as a family! Here's a few tips on how to get started building with your child. 

Fun activities with LEGO to learn and play!

TELL STORIES

You could encourage your child to make up a story about their LEGO® creations. They could film a scene to create a stop motion or short film of their tale. Or they could invent an adventure in which they’re the star and create a LEGO avatar.

CREATIVE CHALLENGES

You could challenge them to a timed build – give them a set number of bricks and a time limit such as 10-15 minutes and see what they create. You could give them a fun theme such as sport, animals or cars.

LEGO® GAMES

Have fun playing a brick building game together. You could take it in turns to build an object, animal or character for the other one to guess, and you can ask questions to help you solve the brick clue.

SHOWCASE CREATIONS

Why not encourage your child to share their creations? Display favourite builds or new creations; create a colourful podium out of bricks; or share a photo on our Facebook page – we’d love to see what you’ve created!
