LEGO Minifig Back to School Writing Prompts

Do you have a LEGO lover in your house?

We've been using LEGOS in all areas of our learning for many years. One area that LEGOS have proven particularly helpful in is writing.

The creativity in creating with LEGOS goes hand in hand with the creativity in writing. 

(Have you seen the many FREE LEGO writing prompts available here at Homegrown Learners? We have LOTS!)

LEGO Minifigure Back to School Free Writing Prompts

The LEGO Back to School Prompts are loads of fun! 

In these writing prompts I ask your child to put themselves inside the head of their favorite LEGO minifigs. It will get your childwriting about their minifig's favorite subject, summer vacation to LEGOLAND, and how they can make them get up in the morning to do their school work! 

The prompts are simple, quick, and thought provoking. I have provided extra lined paper so your children can write as much as their heart desires! 


One example from the set:


My son loves his Fairytale and Historic Minifigures Set from LEGO Education®. These are great minifigs for use during read-alouds, inspiring creative writing, and so much more. 

When he pulled the bucket of them out last week I knew we had to have MORE writing prompts! 


While you're at it, visit my other free LEGO printables and ideas on the LEGO Learning page. 

It's going to be a great LEGO year!

LEGO Minifig Summer Fun Writing Prompts

Don't you love the hot, lazy days of summer?  

In our house there is always a lot of LEGO building that occurs.  

We've witnessed the LEGO construction of a gigantic LEGO baseball field, beach scene, amusement park, and ice cream truck (to name just a few!). 

Let's harness that LEGO building and turn it into learning.  If you've been hanging out at Homegrown Learners for any amount of time, you will know that there is a HUGE area of LEGO activities to spark your child's interest.  (And if you're new here, well then just explore a bit but remember to come back here to download these summer writing prompts!)

LEGO® Minifig Summer Fun Writing Prompts

This download contains 10 summer writing prompts and also a grammar rule (a learning "take away" if you will) that is important for children to master. Each prompt is followed by lined paper, and the end of the download includes a page of minifigs to cut and color. 

You can use this throughout the entire summer, or you could even make one week of your summer LEGO WEEK - and include these writing prompts to sneak some learning into the mix! 

Don't forget your basic LEGO supplies (we're not fans of a lot of the themed sets around here - just some of the basic brick sets, doors, windows, wheels, minifigures, and baseplates are a great way to get your child creating. 

These are our favorite supplies:
