LEGO challenge cards are an easy way to add an extra level of play to your child’s favorite plastic bricks. My kids love LEGO, so my son was instantly excited when he saw that I had made these LEGO challenge cards.
I think they would make a fun stocking stuffer or an accessory to gift with a new box of LEGO bricks. You could even use them as a party game at a LEGO party.
LEGO challenge card game
Print and cut out the LEGO challenge cards and shuffle them. Place the cards face down to make a draw pile or let kids look at the cards to choose ones that inspire them.
The rules are simple: Build what it says on the card. Each one is meant to be open-ended, so kids have inspiration for what to build, but can explore their own creative way of doing it.
There are 16 different challenges and each can be completed in different ways, giving you hours of LEGO fun.
When I made these cards, both of my kids sat down and played with their LEGO bricks for a bit. I shuffled the deck and laid them face down. Each child drew a card and then built what it said.
I made these to be simple enough that preschoolers with a basic block set should be able to build. They’re also just as much fun for older kids who could get more elaborate with those weird special pieces.
And honestly, an adult who loves LEGO will probably have fun coming up with unique interpretations of the cards too. I sat down with the kids to see what I could come up with too.
Here’s a peek at a few of the challenges
The first on was “Build something with just one color.”
Then “Build something you use every day.”
And you could get really creative with “Build something using every color.”
Printable LEGO challenge cards
This printable includes two pages. They fit on regular 8-1/2″x11″ printer paper with 8 cards per page.
After you print, simply cut them out around the edges. I left a small margin of white around mine, but of course, you can cut right along the colored edge. For more durability, you could laminate the individual cards.
