So, your kids love playing with Lego blocks and you wonder if there is another way to play with them? Yes, there is!

I came across this simple Lego Game Board idea and created my own version by making a few changes to what I saw online.

To make it easier for smaller kids to play I have color-coded the spaces for them to recognize what to do when they can’t read yet and it will also help them to learn the numbers.

I also created a larger version of the game board by printing the image in landscape rather than portrait orientation over 2 sheets of paper.

  • Print one sheet I aligned with image on the top of the page and on the second sheet with the image aligned at the bottom of the page.
  • I cut off the white margins
  • Aligned the 2 sheets and glued them together with a 1 inch wide strip of glue
  • Turned over the sheet and cut off the extra overlap on the back

  1. I have started lego therapy sessions with some SEN children and I’m planning to use this in conjunction with it as an end to each session.

  2. I think this would make a great favour for a party my daughter would like to have. About how much pieces of legos would you recommend for each game.
