The valentines day lego pattern is simple to follow, using the pictures of the maze put together. For reference though, the bricks that we used for the heart itself are:

  • X-Small (2 Dots): 2
  • Small (4 Square Dots): 2
  • Medium (6 Rectable Dots): 18
  • Long Large (8 Dots In One Row): 2

We built this maze on a plastic building mat.

For the inside maze part of this STEM project for kids, you can choose whichever bricks work for you or whichever ones you have left that are the colors you chose to use. The only restriction is to make sure that the marble will fit down the lines that you create of the maze. We created the inside maze part and didn’t take that into consideration and had to change it all up because the marble would get stuck on corners and in tight spaces. 

You can follow the picture to know how to make the heart and then make the inside of the maze however you would like. Alternatively, you can even play with the original maze and then switch it up for a different track.

Once you have created the maze, put the marble at the top and tilt the lego mat in varying directions so that the marble moves through the maze. It is so much fun, my kids played for hours!
