Fun Lego Ideas to Try!

Kathy Thornburg

If you haven't already noticed, we are a LITTLE obsessed with LEGO around here! I'm always scouring Pinterest and wracking my brain to think of new ways to have more LEGO fun with my kids. I'm a huge fan of finding other parents with creative ideas and letting those creations inspire us. Again and again I keep going back to Sarah's website Frugal Fun for Boys and Girls. She is an endless source of new ideas and I love how they encourage kids to use their imagination and often helps them practice new skills and information they are learning in school.

I decided to try out three of Sarah's ideas and show you how they turned out. Each activity started with her instructions and we adapted them for our own needs. I love how LEGOS lend themselves perfectly to variations and little added touches that make a creation fit you just right!

Sarah also has a LEGO printable that helps your kid create and write exciting stories using their LEGO collection. Grab a copy of each of her books for added inspiration!

FINALLY a system to keep your LEGOS organized!

Kathy Thornburg

LEGOS are life around here. From the moment our son received his first big kid LEGO set (which was Batman: Defend the Bat Cave), he was hooked. Over the years, the LEGO sets have seemed to multiply and are now the focal point of his bedroom. We are up to 88 sets total (which includes little sister's DUPLO sets). That's a LOT of sets in need of an organized system.

As a graphic designer, part of my job is to work with businesses, bloggers, and online content creators to design online printable materials. I finally decided it was time to put those designing skills to use in my son's room to find a user friendly and practical way to keep all of our sets in order. After weeks and weeks of brainstorming, testing, designing, and tweaking, the brick binder printable was complete! We've been using this binder for a few weeks already and it's come in handy time and time again.

In the video above, you'll see our binder in action and learn more about what's included in this 42 page PDF printable.
