While this implies that outdoor fun is no longer possible, there is still a lot you can do to keep your family happy indoors. Thankfully, you have your LEGO sets with you and you can start building your happiness indoors.  

LEGO builders can use this opportunity to challenge themselves with the most fascinating LEGO ideas and enjoy the best that LEGO has to offer. A standout amongst the many commitment of the LEGO franchise is to create building sets that everyone can enjoy.

So if you are looking for cool ways to keep your family engaged during the COVID-19 lockdown in your state or city, these following ideas will help you stay engaged. You can achieve everything listed on this page with your family and reward yourself with a unique masterpiece. Without any further ado, these are the top LEGO lockdown ideas to achieve with your loved ones.

1. Build a LEGO car with your family

We all love cars; small ones, big ones, even the rugged ones, and we have the perfect car to build with your family. You guessed right, it’s the LEGO Mercedes Benz Arocs. The LEGO Mercedes Benz Arocs is a beastly truck donning beastlier wheels? This gigantic truck has been broken down to 2793 LEGO pieces to give you and your family fantastic building experience. Though challenging and tedious, the LEGO Mercedes Benz Arocs will blow your mind away with its beauty and appeal. Even your four-year-old can join in the fun of building this enormous set. You can even add lights to your creation and transform the set into an iconic masterpiece. It is a relatively complex set, so take your time building it with your loved ones. You can also build cars such as the LEGO Land Rover Defender 42110, LEGO 1989 Batmobile 76139, LEGO Fiat 500 10271, and LEGO Bugatti Chiron 42083

2. Throw A LEGO birthday party

Social distancing or not, a LEGO-themed party is always a great way to relax and have fun. So if your birthday or anniversary falls in this period, don’t feel like you are at a disadvantage. With LEGO, even the darkest days will seem bright. Go into your store or any other place you keep your LEGO things and bring them out for a fun party with your family. You can cut cardboard or paperbacks to represent LEGO characters and assemble your favorite sets to a spectacular LEGO gallery. Just make sure everything in your space resonates with the theme; LEGO. To make your party even more memorable, you can add different types of LEGO games to the list of activities for your LEGO-themed party. Then finish off with a LEGO-Cake.

3. Watch a LEGO movie

There are many fun LEGO movies to watch with your loved ones during the COVID-19 lockdown and are all masterpieces in their rights. So have fun exploring the long list of movies offered by the LEGO franchise as you create new memories with your family. If you are finding it difficult to choose a movie for your lockdown entertainment, here are some cool LEGO movies you can enjoy with your family. 

4. Bake A LEGO Cake

What better way to build happiness in your home than to bake a delectable cake with your loved ones? Whether you are throwing a party or you are celebrating life with your favorite persons, baking a LEGO-based cake can be fun. Besides, it is something everyone in the house can be a part of. You can have your kids help you with the stirring, the whisking, and even the beating of the eggs. LEGO cakes are like your everyday cake; the only difference is how they are finished. Even if you have zero baking experience, you can create a delicious LEGO cake in your home. All you need is an oven, fondant icing, baking soda, eggs, and a host of other cake-related materials. Whether you are creating a chocolaty cake donning gumdrops or a strawberry cake adorned with LEGO mini-figures, you’ll have to bake the cake first. The real work comes after baking the cake. Because then you’ll have to coat the base-cake with fondant icing and design the exterior to resonate LEGO. Most people don’t get it right the first time, so don’t feel bad if your cake doesn’t come out as expected. It’s all part of the learning process, so have fun making your baking mistakes and learning from them.

5. Play LEGO games

Within the last five decades, the world has seen more innovation in the toy industry than it did in previous years. While we look forward to the holographical LEGO games that will make the AR games obsolete, we should recognize the LEGO games that have made the COVID-19 lockdown fun for LEGO builders. If you are looking for action-packed adventure LEGO games to entertain your family and keep you engaged during the social distancing period, here are some cool ideas to get you started. 

Console 

VR/AR

  • LEGO Batman 3; beyond Gotham
  • LEGO BrickHeadz Builder
  • LEGO Ninjago movie – Cole’s Mech -70632
  • LEGO Dimensions 

You can also play the good old games that don’t involve console or augmented display. They include;

  • LEGO hunt
  • LEGO guessing game
  • LEGO Building Challenge 
  • LEGO design your mini-figure game

When it comes to fun LEGO games, the list goes on and on. The important thing, however, is to pick a game that everyone involved can enjoy. 

6. Build a LEGO castle or house

With the lockdown, comes the need to have fun with your family, and you’ll never run out of cool things to do with your LEGO bricks. A standout amongst the many things you can do with your free time is to build a LEGO house with your family. However, with the long list of fun sets provided by LEGO, you may have a hard time picking a LEGO house for your LEGO building experience. That’s why we have taken the trouble of picking one for you; the LEGO stranger Things upside-down house 75810. The stranger things upside house will leave you mesmerized as you journey back and forth from the real world into the dark abyss of an alternate universe. Surely, strange things are bound to happen when you live in a strange house, and it doesn’t get stranger than Hawking’s house. Other cool LEGO houses include;

7.  LEGO puppet show 

Before motion pictures became a thing, puppet shows were the real deal. Even though they are limited in the portrayal of scenes and characters, these man-controlled puppets are still a great way to entertain your family during the lockdown.

As you’ll be doing the puppet show with LEGO bricks and mini-figures, you and your family are set to experience the most fascinating puppet show ever. All you have to do is to set the stage for the puppet show; with LEGO bricks of course.

Next, get a slightly transparent paper or cloth and drape it over the empty area of the stage. The cloth/paper will serve as a screen for your show.

This is where the projected image of your puppets will appear. After setting up your LEGO stage and screen, get your family to sit at the opposite side of the screen, and with the help of a light source (a regular flashlight will suffice), tell your story.  

Conclusion 

Time will not permit us to list all the fun and exciting LEGO ideas you can achieve with your family during the lockdown. However, the few listed on this page can give you a big bang for your buck. To create fresh and exciting moments with your family during the lockdown, make sure you have your favorite LEGO sets handy.

Hey, I am Matthew Mitchell and I am an AFOL from the UK. I have been fascinated by LEGO since I was a child. My two children are in love with LEGO and it's because of them that my interest in LEGO continued to grow, this is how I fell in to the rabbit hole of LEGO MOCs. With every new LEGO MOC I saw I became just a bit more addicted to the endless possibilities that LEGO offers. This led me to creating Belle-Ve Bricks, a platform where talented LEGO designers can share their work with the world.
