St Patricks Day Lego Building Ideas
This printable pack includes ten different build ideas. You will use Classic Legos to create the following:
- top hat
- gold coin
- Irish flag
- pot of gold
- lucky charm
- sherbert mug
The pack includes twenty pages total, as ten are in color and ten are in black and white.
I love that you can just print these and go. Print all of the pages or just the ones you want to start with. Don’t feel like you have to do them all.
An Alternative Way to Use This Lego Printable Pack
There is also tracing and writing practice on each page, as well as an opportunity for kids to tally the Lego bricks being used. This is great math and reading work!
It also makes for a great STEM activity and is a great play idea. Remember, playing can be educational.
Another alternative would be to use the black and white pages to color in the Lego blocks on the page.
Lego building is something you should include in your homeschooling and classroom routine. Remember, learning does not always come from a textbook.
Printable Lego instructions are a frugal fun way to make play educational!
How Do You Store Your Legos?
My boys have a room where they keep all of their large builds up on shelves.
The lose Lego pieces are kept in tubs. You can sort them by color if you want.
I keep one large tub (all the colors and sizes mixed together) downstairs where we do our homeschooling so our little kids can grab them to do these simple build ideas in-between homeschool lessons.

What Are the Educational Benefits of Legos?
When you let your kids build lego creations, you are also encouraging growth in so many other areas.
Lego building helps with developing fine motor skills. It fosters size, shape and color recognition. Lego building builds problem solving and critical thinking skills. Playing with Legos with your friends builds social skills.
What Age Are Legos Good For?
We let our little ones start playing with Legos when they are 3-4 years old if they show interest at that age. We look for attention span, interest from the child and, obviously, can they keep things out of their mouth?
Is Playing with Legos Good for Your Brain?
Legos are a great way to exercise your brain. Starting with simple Lego building ideas like the printables in this post are a perfect way to introduce these fun toys.
