LEGO Build Ideas for Kids When They Don’t Know What to Build

If your children want to play with LEGO but they are struggling to come up with something to build, don’t worry. There are so many fun LEGO build ideas that you can adapt to the LEGO selection that you have. 

Sometimes children need a bit of guidance and if they don’t know what to build, you can challenge them to one of the below projects.

Make a LEGO Self-Portrait

Use a LEGO bottom plate in any size you wish and get creative building a 2D-self-portrait. This is lots of fun and effectual. Once done, you can display your self-portrait in your home for a while too. 


Build a Favourite Character 

Likewise, you can make a 2D-portrait of a favourite character of yours from films, TV-shows, or books. Or you can also build 3D-versions, of course. Mickey Mouse, Hey Duggee characters, Disney Princesses, Marvel Superheroes, Sonic, etc. 

Build a House out of LEGO

Building houses out of LEGO is always fun! For a creative challenge, you could try to build your own family house out of LEGO and make it as similar as possible. You can even make your family out of LEGO Minifigures! Alternatively, you could build your dream house with all the features that your dream home would have.

You can look to Pinterest, Google Images, or YouTube for inspiration.

Another nice 2D-project is to build a sign for your room. Choose any sized base plate and make a sign with your name or a short message that you can display in your room.

Yummy LEGO Treats

Use LEGO Resources for More LEGO Build Ideas

If you need further ideas, there are some excellent resources to use to help you choose a LEGO project. There are lots of great LEGO books full of ideas, of course, but also free online tools. There are apps that you can use to scan your bricks and that then provide you with build ideas based on the bricks that you actually have. This can be very useful, especially if you don’t have loads of LEGO. 

You can also access lots of the LEGO building instructions on the LEGO website to follow building instructions without having to buy new sets. This is especially great if you DO have lots of LEGO bricks already. You don’t have to have every single piece – you can swap for a different colour or find something similar and get a nearly identical result without having to spend money on a new LEGO set each time you see a cool set. Above, you can see my version of the LEGO Halloween Cat & Mouse 40570 Set using just bricks we already had at home.
