Engineer absolutely adores building and creating with LEGO, whether it’s with kits or just his imagination (check out the At-At he built over the holidays). So I’m always on the lookout out for LEGO activities for him! Since Pinterest is how I store many ideas, I wanted to share 15 of my favorite boards dedicated to all things LEGO!
Some of the boards do have the same pins, but they’re still amazing boards to follow. It’s always fun to see what LEGO activities others pin – more ideas for me to try with Engineer!
15 Must-Follow Pinterest boards for kids’ LEGO activities
Of course, I have to start out with Fun-A-Day’s LEGO Activities Galore! These are the ideas I’ve personally pinned to try with my son (age 7) and/or my preschoolers (ages 4 and 5).
Next up is Play Trains/Epic Fun for Kids’ LEGO Activities and Fun. Jessica’s son is into LEGO just like mine, so I keep a close eye on what she pins for her kiddo. Engineer and I LOVE her LEGO Yoda bubbling slime swamp world and her design-your-own LEGO wooden train tutorial!
Amy of Wildflower Ramblings created some cool LEGO letter cards, so of course I like checking out what she pins to her LEGO Fun and Learning board.
Dyan of And Next Comes L’s LEGO Activities for Kids board has over 100 cool ideas for the kiddos! On her blog, she shares how to use LEGO Duplo to teach fractions in a hands-on way.
Natalie of Planet Smarty Pants shared an awesome LEGO drawbot tutorial last year, and she pins lots of activities to her LEGO Pinterest board.
LalyMom’s LEGO and DUPLO board is chock full of ideas for the kiddos. Be sure to check out her tutorial for a DIY removable LEGO wall, too!
Oh, how I adore Ellie of Creative Geekery, so I just had to include her LEGO Love Affair board! I found her collection of ideas to deal with LEGO manuals really helpful, too!
Andie Jaye of Crayon Freckles’s Lego My LEGOs board has ideas pinned by 7 ladies, so there’s a lot of variety! Kristina of Toddler Approved is one of the collaborators – she hosted a LEGO week with other sites that shared some awesome ideas to try with the kids.
KCEdventures’ Fun with LEGO board is another one to watch. On her blog, Jacquie shared a list of items to use to count to 100. I love that she included LEGO pieces on the list, as Engineer used them when he was learning to count! Sarah of Frugal Fun for Boys is also a contributor to the board, and I love her tutorial for building rubber band-powered LEGO cars.
Sunshine and Hurricanes’ LEGO Love board always has some cool and different LEGO ideas to try! Kira and Michelle have an awesome idea for a kid-made LEGO travel box I’d suggest checking out, too.
Lemon Lime Adventures’ LEGO Lessons board has over 150 ideas to read about! Dayna has shared many LEGO activities on her site, but my favorite is still the LEGO man excavation.
The Chaos and the Clutter also has a Pinterest board dedicated to LEGO. I love Sharla’s earthquake experiment that integrated the use of LEGO bricks.
iGameMom’s LEGO board is another great resource for kiddos (and parents). Between iGameMom and Brain Power Boy (another contributor to the board), there are close to 200 pins to choose from!
I’m a huge fan of Living Montessori Now, so I couldn’t forget to include her Kids’ LEGO Learning Activities board.
Happy Hooligans’ LEGO board is a favorite of mine, as well. I’m pretty partial to it because Fun-A-Day’s Star Wars LEGO Science post was one of Jackie’s first pins to the board. I may have fan-girled a little at that. 😉
Oh, and of course there are LEGO’s own Pinterest boards to check out, too! They’ve got quite a few to choose from!
Well, those are my top 15 recommendations for Pinterest boards dedicated to LEGO activities for kids! I hope you found some new pinners to follow, as well as tons of new ideas to try with your children and/or students. Do you have a LEGO Pinterest board?

- LEGO DUPLO set

So, we all know LEGOs are amazing. But there are also lots of other building sets that are perfect for preschool engineering activities. Check some of my favorites out below!
