Legos are so much fun but what makes them even better is learning with them by playing games. These great boredom busters are great even to do at a kids party. Combine reading with Lego play by writing colors on index cards and sorting the Legos by the color the kid's read.
Build a simple Lego structure, take a picture of it, and give the picture to the kids asking them to reconstruct the same structure. Another great idea is building a classic game board out of Legos.
Having a Lego tower building contest is a classic among many households. Have a competition among the kids trying to build the tallest tower as fast as possible. The winner will be tower that does not tip over.
