Christmas and New Year had me playing with my boys instead of online...well some of the time.Being a feasting sloth also featured highly.
We built Lego City Cargo Terminal, Rescue Helicopter and then racing the Legends of Chima. Lego building is a lovely way - for me - to bond and connect. (no pun intended with them and their interests)
My boys like to
I suggested to my boys we re-build all our Lego City collection and they cried no - because they have build their own vehicles,
' BASES ' , buildings and display their mini figures collections- (Superman and Darth Varder are now friends too)
So this Christmas - It went like this -
Step 1: B
|(this was after Christmas but illustrates the point)|
Step 4: Retreat to your corner - commence build !
Step 5: Knock Lego on the Floor; under the table, under the lounge ; LEGO, start looking for the missing pieces ...find pieces from last week.
Step 6: Document the Completion. Play !
|Joel made the Helicopter completely with no assistance. Only Superman can save the day ...he is from another set . The boys also independently made the H helicopter landing pad.|
Step 7: Children make modifications ...while I step on stray Lego and commence - hopping and cursing (at children).
Congratulations to Carmen J, Vicky F and Kylie B
