Lego Matching


When your kids love legos, you incorporate them into a hands on learning activity! My kids were so excited to see legos on the table for activity time. And I was just as excited to see them having fun with their activity. I used duplo legos for this activity but any type will work. 

This activity can easily be adapted to fit your child’s learning level. From colors, letters, shapes, numbers, counting, it’s an activity that can be used over and over again. For my 3 year old, I did a simple letter matching activity. Right now I am just focusing on having my 3 year old recognize that letters are all different. For my 4 year old, I had her match uppercase and lowercase letters. 

It does take a little bit of time to set up but nothing that is too time consuming. So if you have some legos at home, be sure to try this activity!


Here’s how to do it:


  • Legos
  • Tape
  • Marker
  • Scissors
  • Optional: Alphabet chart

Step 1: Make sure you have an even number of legos so that there are matching sets for whatever theme you are doing. In my case, we did letters.

Step 2: Place tape on one side of the legos.

Step 3: Write letters (or numbers, colors, or shapes) on the tape for each matching pair. For my 3 year old I put the same letters on two legos. For my 4 year old, I put an uppercase letter on one and a lowercase letter on another to make a matching set.


Step 4: Place the legos into two separate piles so your child can match one side to the other side. 

Step 5: Have your child match the legos!
