Whether your kids have been back at school for two weeks or they don't return til after Labor Day, families are starting to get back into the swing of school. If your kids' math skills have gotten a little rusty over the summer, bring them back gently with some LEGO math.

The people behind E is for Explore, a website filled with clever learning activities, have gathered quite a few fun math exercises with LEGO bricks. With younger children, focus on simple counting; for older kids, the activities progress to fractions, geometry, or multiplication.

Have you used LEGO blocks for educational purposes beyond design? Let us know in the comments.
