Anyone else have kids who get a new toy and then are bored with it ten minutes later?
I think this is pretty common, but I didn’t expect it to happen when we got our kids a set of LEGO blocks.
I imagined my children making endless creations and showing them off to all of their friends. Also, I was kind of hoping at least one of them would take to engineering.
What actually happened was that we bought the blocks and they just sat in the closet for months on end.
Turns out my kids needed a little inspiration jump start.
So I’m glad to share these printable LEGO STEM Challenge Building Cards with all of you – in case yours need a little boost too.
There are enough LEGO building ideas here for four weeks of open-ended STEM play!
Which can be a real lifesaver on long afternoons, believe me.

If you’d like, you can laminate the blank cards and then let the kids write challenges with dry erase markers. That way, you can wipe them clean and let them come up with more ideas later!
