Lego Challenge Math Activity for Kids (with Free Printable)~ Buggy and Buddy

 

This post was originally published on February 2o, 2014 and has since been updated.

Do your children or students love playing with Lego? Lego bricks provide many opportunities for learning and inspire so much creativity. My two year old is constantly building monster trucks with his Duplos, and my five year old can often be found creating all kinds of imaginary places with her Lego bricks.

With my children’s growing interest in all things Lego and Duplo, I decided to create a fun math activity using the Lego bricks as the main material- a Lego challenge! Not only did my daughter really enjoy creating structures based on the challenges presented to her, she was also working on her spatial awareness and geometry skills at the same time!

Lego Challenge Math Activity for Kids

All your really need for this math activity is some Lego or Duplo bricks- that’s it! You can also print out the free math challenge printable. Any child who is reading independently can do it on his/her own. For children not yet reading, you can read the challenges aloud to the child.

First you’ll need to gather together a group of Lego bricks to be used for the challenge. I started Lucy off with 6 bricks of the same size (2 yellow, 2 orange, and 2 green).

Your child or student will use all the bricks given to complete each separate challenge. Their solution can be sketched below the challenge on the free printable.

For any Lego Challenge you do in the future, simply print out another copy of the same free printable, but give your child a different set of Lego bricks to use. The combination of bricks you give your child will determine the difficulty of each challenge. You can try increasing the number of bricks, varying the shape of bricks, or changing the number of colors. The possibilities are endless!
