Most kids love LEGO. My oldest J claims he loves to play with LEGO, but if I'm going to be honest with you, I'm pretty sure he just enjoys chewing on LEGO more so than just building with it. But that's between you and me.

Regardless, both boys like to play with LEGO so we have been using it to explore and learn about emotions. However, you can also use LEGO to manage big emotions and help kids self-regulate. This list of fun ways for kids to explore, learn about, and manage their emotions using LEGO is perfect for any kid who loves LEGO.

Not all the ideas use actual LEGO bricks, but they are all inspired by LEGO and are tons of fun!
