If you don’t think possibilities are endless, think again. Legos are totally going to change your mind.
Last time we talked about how good Legos are for kids’ brains. So, I don’t think you still need any convincing on encouraging Lego play to your children.
If you’re running out of ideas, don’t worry. I’ve got you covered. These 15 simple Lego projects that kids will love can help you keep a fun environment for them.
1. Lego Memory Game

Let’s make a game out of a game! Consider this a game-ception. Cool, huh?
So basically, what you need here are Lego platform and unused Lego pieces. If you have Lego sets with lots of missing pieces, you’d totally love this!
Think of it a recycling what you thought are already useless Legos. The best thing is, you’d get to help them make a fun game they can play.
2. Lego Belt

Fine, I admit. Your kid can’t really create this by himself. That’s unless you can trust him around hot glue. Have you ever imagined actually wearing Lego for fashion?
Thanks to Delia Creates, you can! Your child is sure to stand out from the crowd. At a young age, there is very little opportunity to dress yourself.
Gift your child this fun little change. He can design the buckle himself, and you help them do the rest.
3. Lego Emotions Station

Lego projects for kids are best when inspired by also something meant for them.
In this case, I’m talking about the Disney movie Inside Out. This project let them play with their emotions. Not literally, though.
Your kids can design their own versions of Joy, Sadness, Disgust, Anger, and Fear.
You guys have a little conflict?
This would be a great and non-confrontational way to start.
4. Lego Balance

Which one’s heavier, 10 pennies or 5 gumballs?
Through Frugal Fun for Boys and Girls, your little one can find out. This would be a good way for him to become aware of mass and gravity.
Sure, you can make a balance out of other materials. But because it’s supposed to be a kid DIY project, Legos would work best.
5. Lego Slippers

LEGO SLIPPERS? I must be insane! Laly Mom MUST be insane! But I assure you, we aren’t.
Actually, this is something that they can protect themselves with. God knows when that anonymous Lego will strike.
Just so we’re clear, it’s called Lego slippers because it’s designed with Lego bricks. Just to warn you, your kid will need to use scissors and needles.
If you aren’t comfortable with them working with those, skip this. But if you are, this would be a great yet simple project.
Besides, don’t you want to shock people every time you say you’re going to wear Lego slippers?
6. Lego Frame

Here’s a sweet idea. Why don’t you try framing your best Lego moments with Lego frames?
With a little help using hot glue, your kid can design one of his very own.
Plus, get rid of the stray Lego bricks in the carpet.
Want to solve two problems at once? Try this simple yet useful project.
7. Lego Safe

Why would a kid need a safe? No idea. Maybe he just needs to keep his coins safe.
Well, at least he’d learn about responsibility.
And if you can actually make him interested in this, it shows a lot about his character. I personally think it’s never too early to teach children about handling money.
They’re going to have to do it eventually, anyway. Why not now?
Financial responsibility is something that even some adults don’t have a clue about. Also, Legos are cute and colorful. I’m sure every kid would love this.
8. Lego Coasters

Tired of getting water stains on your table? Then, you might want to encourage your kids to make some of these Lego coasters.
Why not? They make a great addition to the dinner table.
Besides, what better way to make them remember to use them?
Making this will take some effort for a child.
So, there’s a chance that they’d want to use it as often as possible. If you don’t know how to start, check out Adam’s design on the link above.
9. Lego Circle

This is pretty useless, isn’t it? If you’re creative enough, it’ far from that.
Think of the possibilities. This could be an arena of sorts for your Lego battles. Or perhaps you can transform it to a hanging Lego lamp?
Let your imagination run wild. Think of it. How cool is it to make circles out of squares?
10. Lego Utensil Holder

Are you going to have a party? Or maybe you just want a little change around the house?
Design your Lego utensil holder like a house like Big K Little G.
Perhaps you want to turn things up a notch and go with a castle instead. Whatever you decide, the most important thing you can fit all the utensils you need to.
11. Lego Pacman Ornaments

I have a confession to make. This one’s actually meant for Christmas. But who doesn’t love Pacman?
If you don’t want Pacman ghosts hanging (literally) around your house, you simply get rid of the ribbon. Pacman is a beloved video game icon, and these kickass decorations would be loved as well.
The best thing about this, you can make it with the most basic Lego pieces. Why don’t you suggest this to the kids? They’d surely be super excited.
12. Lego Chess Set

A real wood Chess set is pretty expensive. It’d be a shame if some of the pieces get lost.
If you don’t want to worry about that all the time, let your kids build a Lego chess set. Plus, you get to design your own chess pieces. Be prepared though, you’d need LOTS of Legos.
Also, your kid may need some guidance doing some math. Take this opportunity to spend some quality time with him.
13. Lego Razor Holder

I know they don’t have anything to shave yet. But I was just thinking, kids can run out of ideas too.
They don’t have cash and have limited options.
There’s no point making it any harder for them.
Indeed, this Lego razor holder is a great Lego idea for kids and a great gift for any occasion.
It’s simple and fun to build. You can even suggest that they make it the same color of your razor. Neat, huh?
14. Lego Lamp

Let your kids conquer their fear of the dark on their own.
No, I’m not talking about traumatizing them. Let them build a Lego lamp.
It’s not too bright for sleeping, and it’s not too dim for them. Just enough light passes through.
Also, the design is great, like light is peaking through little windows. The design may look complicated, but this something they can do by themselves.
Don’t let them mess with the electricity stuff, though! That’s something you probably want to do for them.
15. Lego Mechanical Puzzle
