Easter is just around the corner, and if you’re like many parents, you’re probably scrambling to find fun and engaging activities to keep your kids busy. Enter Printable Easter Lego Mats! These awesome mats are bursting with all kinds of Easter-themed builds, from bunnies and baskets to chicks and chocolate.
And the best part? They’re not only entertaining, but they’ll also help your kids develop essential skills like counting, tracing, and writing.
Printable Easter Building Block Mats
If you’re looking for a fun and interactive activity for your kids this Easter, then Printable Easter Lego Mats might just be the perfect solution! But what exactly are they?
These Easter building block sheets are a great way to combine two things that many children love: Lego building and Easter. Kids can use their own Lego bricks to build and create their own Easter stories using the designs on the mats.
While these sheets are designed to be used with Classic Lego blocks, children can also utilize duplo blocks to build and create their own Easter-themed designs.
Easter-themed builds included are:
- The Easter Bunny
- Easter Eggs (x2)
- Easter Basket
- and Peep.
These builds can promote creativity, imagination, and problem-solving skills in kids.
Moreover, these mats also contain different activities that can help kids to develop their writing and reading skills. These activities include tracing and writing, which is a great way to improve your child’s literacy skills while still having fun.
How to Use the Printable Easter Lego Mats
So, how do you use these mats?
It’s easy! Simply print and play!
Print out the mats: The first step is to download and print out the Easter Lego Mats. Make sure to print them on sturdy paper or cardstock to ensure they last through repeated use. I would highly suggest laminating your Lego mats or using a write and wipe pocket.
Gather the Lego blocks: Next, gather the Lego blocks that you plan to use with the mats. Classic Lego blocks are ideal, but Duplo blocks can also be used for younger children. To use Duplo blocks kids will need to build off the mat and use the picture as a guide.
Choose a mat: Let your child choose which Easter-themed Lego mat they want to work on first. Each mat has different designs and activities, so make sure to pick one that is appropriate for your child’s age and skill level.
Follow the pattern: Encourage your child to follow the pattern on the mat to create their Easter-themed designs. They can use the included reference art to help them along the way.
Write, trace, and tally: In addition to building and creating, the mats also come with activities such as writing, tracing, counting, and tallying. Encourage your child to complete these activities to improve their literacy and numeracy skills.
To make the activity even more engaging for your child, try these tips:
- Set a timer and challenge your child to complete a certain number of designs in a specific amount of time.
- Have your child work in pairs or small groups to build and create their designs.
- Encourage your child to add their own unique touches to their designs.
