It’s been another mad month of LEGO building in our house. The DUPLO has been out everyday and Z has been working his way through his birthday Star Wars sets.
Little H has developed a love for giraffes. She started out building them with DUPLO, complete with sellotaped ears, which I wouldn’t recommend as we now have several very sticky DUPLO bricks. When playing Creationary she moved onto smaller LEGO, here they are all lined up ready to go into the shed she made with a cardboard box.
H also loves building DUPLO towers, we’ve been playing around at making them stable and not stable. She’s always rolling balls into them to see if they fall over.
I finally managed to buy Z some LEGO roof tiles, windows and doors, which have given him a
new love for building freely. What do you think of this house? I love the car port and little table.
After our trip to LEGOLAND he also made this rather fab lighthouse.
S is still LEGO Friends crazy and has a long list of requests ready for her birthday!
What have you been building this month?
Our LEGO stash needs updating I’m afraid – the men are all headless and there’s no sign of them, the doors without frames. Ozzy made a car the other day with 2 wheels! Which means somewhere there are 38 car wheels lurking – where do they all go?!?! Will re-supply for half term as it’s always a fave with him!
Donna @ Little Lilypad Co
My eldest daughter never really bothered with lego but my youngest LOVES it!
We need to add to our collection!
MY GIRLS ENJOY PLAYING WITH LEGO TOO…KARA LOVES BUILDING THINGS WHILE HER YOUNGER SISTER PULLS THEM APART…I GUESS AT LEAST THEY PLAY TOGETHER THOUGH.
I love Lego, it really does inspire doesn’t it? We still have the great big duplo blocks that we had when my two were babies, I think they could do with a new home now, but every time I think about getting rid of them, they build something with them again! 😀
We are slowly getting into Lego and Little has an amazing lego fire station but he still isn’t too bothered about free play. I love your giraffes, we will give those a go as they are easy and Little loves animals.
My daughter was never really that into Duplo, I must see if she prefers Lego. I love seeing the little scenes she’s created and I think she could make some great Lego buildings.
I used to love Lego!
Oh I love the lighthouse – it’s fantastic. Great idea to talk about how stable the structure is too.
I love the lighthouse…very cool! We8ve just bought lego friends for our 5 yr olds birthday. Must admit, I’m loving it too!
Ooh, I LOVE the Lego lighthouse, that’s brilliant. T is into all things nautical at the moment so we’ll have to see if we can come up with something similar. He has been playing with ‘big boy’ Lego for the last few months, but I was really pleased when he brought down his Duplo last weekend and spent a happy few hours with that too. Proof yet again that Lego is the BEST! x
Boo Roo and Tigger Too
LEGO really captures a child’s imagination, Roo received a mini LEGO Harry Potter kit from Beaver Scouts this week and is now crazing me for all the sets (but I don’t think you can buy them anymore).
