Today, for Summer Fun Fridays, I’ve got a fun activity for you Lego fans. With this Roll and Build Lego Challenge, you’ll roll the dice and based on what you roll, you use your Lego to build the item listed. Easy, right?
It’s lots of fun to challenge yourself to make all of these different shapes. You can play this game on your own or with some friends.

- Dice (you only need one but if you’re playing with other people, you could give each person their own if you want)
- An assortment of Lego
How to Play:
- Roll the die. Depending on the number you roll, that will correspond to the item you need to make out of the Lego.
- You can choose to all play using just one of the cards (so each of you are making the same objects for each number) or you can hand out a different card to each person so that they are each making something different.
- There are points assigned to the various numbers/objects. You can choose to use those points or not. The game can be timed and then whoever earns the highest number of points in that time wins. Or you can set a number – 100 for example – and then whoever reaches that number first wins.
- Of course, this doesn’t need to be a game where someone wins. You could make it a cooperative activity and once again, set a number and have everyone work together to try to reach that number. Or you can remove the points and just use this as an activity simply for the fun of building and not for any kind of goal or achievement.
- My grandson loves playing games like this. He gets excited simply by making the objects and then showing them to us. Or as a next step, he loves it when he makes them and then we take photos of each one with our phones.
- Extend the activity by having the kids brainstorm other items that they could challenge themselves and each other to make. I have included a sheet that is blank so you can fill in your own objects to build.
- Another way to change the activity is by limiting the choice of Lego bricks. Instead of having a bucket of Lego for everyone to dig into, give each person the same set of selected bricks. They can only use those when completing this challenge.
