We have lots of Lego fans at our house, and I’ve recently run across a couple of resources I know they’re going to love. So on the off chance your kids are as crazy about those little building blocks as mine are, I thought I’d share a round-up of all these fresh, fun ideas for fellow Lego fan right here and right now.
Fun Ideas for Lego Fans

The Proverbial Homemaker is giving away an adorable Lego Thanksgiving challenge on their site this month for FREE, full of fun Thanksgiving-themed challenges and activities for the Lego fan in all of us.

Kids will stay quiet in the car for hours with this fun travel activity. You’ll find complete instructions for creating your own at StuffedSuitcase.com.
I’ve spotted this smart idea on Pinterest — perfect for celebrating the upcoming birthday of one of my biggest fans. We’ve been making our own piñatas for years.

It never occurred to us to make a Lego shaped piñata — but what could be more perfect than that? You’ll find instructions for making this one on Delia Creates:

Not only are these gift bags from Farmish Momma super cute, but they are a snap to make:
