Robotics for kids

Coding a LEGO Maze

Technology is ruling the world and there’s no denying it. Programming will be an essential part of your children’s future. It is better to learn some coding from a very small age. Programming a computer is excellent work. It is possible for your child to learn some basics of programming when he is a toddler. Here we are going to cover the STEM project of coding a LEGO Maze. Children of age 5 or 6 can easily do this activity. The basics will be made clear.


The main objective of this activity is to make your child understand coding. Only some basics will be covered. Here we will be using paper instead of a computer.

  1. You need to print and cut the papers. This step is for parents only. Print all the necessary instructions that you need in building a LEGO maze. You only need to do this once in the entire process.
  2. Let you kid make the maze. Let your child make his own maze with the blank building blocks.
  3. If you are a fan of DUPLO, cut out the white parts of the maze and place it over the board given. Now build the maze as your child wants. It is preferable that you advise your kid to build the walls first as it will help the maze to be connected.
  4. The first step is to tell your kid to think about how to get a character out of the maze. Your child must understand the path of how a character can come out, then only he should start the code.
  5. Give your child all the cards that you have printed. There will be some instructions like END, GO FORWARD, GO LEFT, GO RIGHT. This was the level 1 of the activity. Parents should be aware of when your child turns his character left or right.
  6. When your child has passed level 1 successfully, parents can help kids understand the for loop methods. The instructions will go like this. FOR ____ Steps. Your child needs to understand how many steps he needs to move his character. After the FOR LOOP statement, use an END statement that indicates the end of the loop.
  7. In the third level of the activity, teach your kid the use of IF statements. It may seem a bit tougher for a 5 or 6 years old kid, but make them understand when to use it and see your child trying to apply it in his LEGO Maze.
  8. Once he has made the entire code for the maze, ask him to build another maze and ask him to try the same code there. Your kid will notice the same code doesn’t work for all mazes.


It is expected your kid will love this fun activity. Your kid doesn’t go out of the house to do this activity, so this is the best activity that you do with your kid now.
