LEGO Printables for Colors and Patterns

Post by contributing writer Kim of Life Over C’s

My daughter loves everything to do with LEGO® right now. While she is definitely a DUPLO user, she loves playing with her older sisters as they create with their LEGO bricks. Not a day goes by that she isn’t building something and playing with the fun characters that she has. To go along with her love, I created her some fun LEGO printables for colors & patterns. The two skills we are focusing on right now.


Materials needed for the LEGO Printables for Colors & Patterns:


Laminating pouches and laminator

Red, blue and yellow LEGO bricks

To prepare the activity, print and laminate the color sorting pack. Be sure to select “scale to print” on the print dialogue when printing the PDF, so that you get a nice fit.

When we used these, I presented one page at a time with the bricks, so that my daughter wouldn’t be overwhelmed or distracted. Usually, I display our activities on trays in our school room so that she can choose her own activities throughout the day after I have shown her how to use them. (Much like a Montessori-style.)

She returns to her favorites day after day and with three older sisters, I’m glad that she has some independence.

Color Sorting Mat


To use this mat, simply have your child match the color of the bricks to the matching square on the color sorting mat. This is self-correcting since the kids can see immediately if the brick is on the wrong square.

My daughter is familiar with this type of activity, so all I do it start the activity by placing one matching bricks on the squares and she does the rest herself.


Pattern Mat

This is a very introductory opportunity for pattern-making. While some kids may be ready for independent pattern creation, my daughter still needs the pictures to guide her.

By allowing her to match the colors of the bricks to the squares it gives us an opportunity to build language skills by learning color words and the concept of “next”. Right now every color is ‘blue’ to her.



When we work on patterns I help to verbalize what she is doing. Saying, “Red, blue, red, blue, red, blue,” helps her to make connections that she wouldn’t realize simply by putting the bricks on the paper.

The rhythmic sound of repeating the patterns out load is great for learning new words!
