Lego bricks have been around since 1958 and have twice been named “Toy of the Century.” From amusement parks, to apps, to movies, Legos have come a long way from the simple little plastic brick. There is much to be said about a product that has been around for this long and is still beloved by so many. Recognizing the potential of these small pieces of plastic, has an impressive collection of ideas for how to use Legos as an educational tool.

Free Homeschool Deals We at Smart Apps love the deals and ideas from Free Homeschool Deals. I swooned when I found they have a whole category on their website devoted to Legos! They have TONS of free Lego themed printables, curriculum ideas, as well as discount alerts. They even have a Pinterest board dedicated to Lego Homeschooling. Be still my heart!

Rachel H still remembers the first Lego set her dad ever bought her. She is pretty sure one of her siblings snagged it after she left for college.
