Kids love playing with LEGOs, so why not use them to help your kids learn? Here are five LEGO oriented Learning ideas we found on Pinterest. These were some of our favorite ideas, but there are tons more where these came from. For more ideas check out:

Do you have any favorite ways to use LEGOs to help enhance your kid’s learning experience?

Add and Subtract With LEGO – This is probably one of the easiest and most simple ways to use blocks to learn. While they are at it, maybe they can sort the thousands of blocks all mixed together in that large bin.
LEGO Marble Run – Learn about speed and angles by building a marble run.
Letters, Counting, and Measuring with LEGO – This LEGO lap book is perfect for Pre-K and Kindergarten learners. It’s all in one place and simple to use. The best part is that it is FREE thanks to the amazing mom at Walking by the Way.
Learn Fractions With LEGO – Fractions can be difficult to understand, but use a few LEGO bricks for a visual concept that most people instantly understand. My kids are in 4th and 7th grade and we still pull out LEGO bricks to help understand math concepts.
