Creative Kids – We love lego (and a give-away!)

Spread the love

Creative kids logo

Welcome to the first Creative Kids of 2015. We have lots to share over the next few months, and each month will be doing a crafty or creative give way, as part of our trying to keep things creative…

This week, it’s short and sweet. We want to talk about Lego! We LOVE Lego. Adults and children alike are enthralled and occupied in this house by Lego. Little Man was given a fair amount for Christmas but we all share in the fun of making things and creating objects. Sometimes we read and follow the instructions, sometimes we just wing it and make it up as we go. Both my children started out using Duplo blocks when they were toddlers, then graduated to proper Lego, and we have many sculptures and bits scattered around the house at the moment (I will say that Lego HURTS when you tread on it, in the middle of the night, in the dark, I think that’s a parental right of passage, or something?) Lego is amazing for encouraging imaginations both young and old, and helping with fine motor skills and general creativity, it’s also a great thing to keep little fingers and busy minds occupied and happy. 

As you can see Little Man is very excited about his Lego acquisitions over Christmas, and I have spent all week helping him to construct and reconstruct his Lego Bat Cave. Big Girl likes to build mansions and is a stickler for following the instructions…

They were a bit naughty and built a pub where apparently all the Lego figures had to go and have a drink. They spent a lot of time there but then they came and visited the castle that I had built and said it was the best castle they had ever seen made of lego πŸ™‚ It was an awesome afternoon πŸ™‚ Thanks for linking up to #minicreations
