While you’re working on your all about me theme with your preschooler, create your home together with legos. This is a fun and engaging way to work on fine motor skills, language development, STEM, and artistic expression.
In our week of low-prep activities for our all about me unit, I thought of this simple gem: build your home together with legos! Who doesn’t love a good lego activity?
I considered making a home together out of popsicle sticks, or some other craft item, but time and time again, I kept feeling like legos were the right choice for my son.
I’m glad we chose legos, as it allowed him to get super detailed and creative!

Build your Home Lego Activity
When I pulled out the lego bin, I told my son we were going to make our house together, since we’re learning about “Marshall” all week. I asked him which rooms in the house were his favorite, and what color legos he thought we should use to make the outside.
He surprised me by taking the reigns and insisting that we make our cars first. He talked about our minivan, and pulled out various wheels.
From there, he built our house, but not the way I had envisioned. He did it from a birds eye view! The little clear blue blocks were the “kitchen counter” and “school table.”
He blew me away with that! I really thought we’d throw together some blocks to make a building and call it a day, but he went all out.
